Every year, the lives of thousands of young girls are ripped apart through illness, poverty, abuse and hardship.
Education is the most important thing in helping the children of Kenya to get out of the poverty that they live in. Our main focus is the CARA Girl’s Rescue Centre (CGRC), located in Kibiko, Ngong, Nairobi, Kenya.
Through your help and support we can help to provide some respite for these young children, from whatever hardship and suffering they are experiencing in their lives.
Our Vision is to embed and facilitate positive change for individual girls and women, to ensure that we empower them through support and education, which combines both life and skill training, to positively meet challenges.
We look to build with them a strong sense of personal value, self worth and independence to break the cycle of negative cultural taboos alongside the dependency culture.
Our values and objectives are to work to provide medium term care, assist, protect, educate young vulnerable girls and women in the Ngong Region.
To build their self esteem and trust to become confident, able and assured in all that they do.
Provide education, encompassing life and skill training to empower self sufficiency in adult life.
To reach out and help the wider local community and individuals, to promote and mentor our values and ethos
