Creating a better world through education

Hands of Love school is located in Kariobangi, a low-income residential estate in Nairobi, Kenya. The school provides education, two meals/day, and basic healthcare to over 180 severely economically disadvantaged children aged 3-8. It was founded in 2008 by Kenyan resident, Terry Little, in order to provide daycare for working families in the community and has grown with those children to a fully recognized primary school.

COVID-19 CRISIS

There are now (July 12) 10,105 confirmed cases of COVID – 19 in Kenya. On March 15, President Kenyatta closed all schools to try and stop the disease before it has a chance to strike what is already a vulnerable population. The latest information we have is that schools will remain closed until at least early September.

We decided the best way to keep our students nourished was to deliver food staples to them directly at home. Later, we changed from providing food directly to giving families vouchers which they could redeem at a nearby store for food. As of May 22, we have given over 4,500kg (9,921 pounds) of food and vouchers worth more than Ksh450,000 ($4,500) to 130 families. Currently, we are offering vouchers worth Ksh2,400 ($24) to each family every three weeks.
