KENYA, Jabez Community School, Mukuru Slums

26 Mar

We received a number of drawings from the lovely children in the Jabez Community Orphanage School in the Mukuru Slums, Nairobi, Kenya under the leadership of Jabes Odhiambo. What amazingly creative children they are. 

The design above was drawn by Charity Mueni who says:

One Community, One People, One Peace.” Great work by Charity.

Thank you to Dennis Imbali for this one where he illustrates and promotes peace through sport and football.

Well done to Ramadhan for this design which is a celebration of peace itself showing the doves and the peace emblem.

Thank you so much to Peter Sotheran from the Guisborough Rotary club and to the organisation as a partner for working with contacts so these children can give their voice for Peace.

“The slums are home to approx’ 850,000 people, living in tin sheds with earth floors, no sanitation or running water. If you watched Lenny Henry & Angela Rippon in the Kibera Slums, then you get the picture. The Mukuru slum is only a mile or so away, across the railway tracks from Kibera.” Peter Sotheran

We are blessed and  honoured to have these children involved in this project.

Motto: ” Harambee” ( Swahili )
