Closed Support for AIDS Orphans & Widows in Bombolulu

Cecil Kindergarten gives orphans from a poor community in Kenya early childhood education, clothing and a daily lunch.

A. Wambua from A. WambuaWrite a message

Six years ago I founded, together with 10 women, Cecil Kids Center in a village near Mombasa. In the village are many small children who are being taken care of by their single mothers or grandmothers, because the rest of the family died of AIDS.

My daughter Catherine helped me to buy a plot of land with a mud house on it which we use to look after the children and give support to the widows. In the Center we aim at raising awareness on HIV/AIDS, we provide councelling to people living with the illness, encourage voluntary testing, and provide food, shelter and education to orphans and vulnerable children.

So far our campaign against drug abuse, alcoholosim and prevention of HIV/AIDS has reached 139 men, 116 women and 160 youth. We have counseled over 100 people and reffered them to Coast General Hospital Mombasa. We also run a nursery school at Ziwa La Ng'ombe, Bombolulu.

We have previously used donations to build our school building, to buy tables, chairs, uniforms, books and pencils and to pay teachers salaries. At the moment we are looking for funds in order to connect our school to the power line.
