The Tent of Refuge Project

As of 6th April Kenya is in another lockdown as they face the 3rd wave of covid-19. Churches and schools are closed. The cost of living and in particular food has risen sharply.

 

The Tent of Refuge continues to prepare food parcels for hungry families. Their work has been recognised by the local authority and they are planning to help them with food supplies for the wider community.

 

 

 

 

8 kilometres north east of Nairobi city centre is Dandora Estate. This is the site of Nairobi’s main rubbish dump which covers 30 acres. On this dumpsige 1,000+ men, women & children eke out a living by scavenging for recyclables at great risk to their health. 



 

 

 

 

 

Working in partnership with a local church, the Tent of Refuge provides a good meal, mentoring, Christian teaching and games  to 100+ children each week helping to keep them off the dumpsite; it enables children to go to Primary and Secondary School by providing help with uniforms, tuition and lunches.

The Tent of Refuge is currently (2021) helping 26 pupils at Primary School with daily school lunches.

 

The project is also helping 10 students with a contribution of KSh 5,000 for Secondary School fees (age 14-18 yrs) for the 1st term. This empowers the parents to keep the youth in school.
