A section of NCWSC staff visited the The Mary Immaculate Rehabilitation Centre also known as Mukuru promotion center on the 7th December 2018.
The Centre, which is opposite Mater Hospital, was established in 1995 for the many street children (mainly boys) who were wandering and living on the streets of Nairobi. The center conducts non-formal primary teaching for whom it is appropriate, and carpentry and art for the older ones. The boys also engage in extracurricular activities; art, music, football, gardening, scouting and some craft work. The goal of the 12 months Rehabilitation program is to re-integrate the boys to family (if possible) or to a meaningful life off the streets, in boarding school or in employment. Group and individual counselling is an integral part of the programme and is carried out on a very regular basis. From monthly offerings and contributions, the NCWSC team was able to donate a cake, food stuff and clothing to the children who were overwhelmed by the visit.
