|Mission||To empower children, families and communities by giving them education, helping them develop skills and resource mobilization to overcome poverty and pursue social justice.|
Destiny Shapers Kenya is a Non - profit Organization working in Korogocho slum in Nairobi, Kenya. We empower children, families and communities by giving them education, helping them develop skills and resource mobilization to overcome poverty and pursue social justice.
Destiny Shapers Kenya’s core unit of operations is organized as Centre dubbed "Kids of Purpose” which comprises a school that provides education and responds to other needs of Orphans and vulnerable children like feeding program, mentorship, guidance and counseling, and child sponsorship. These children are identified through our home visits; social workers visit homes where these children live, the living conditions are deplorable. Currently we have 65 children who are between 3 – 6 years, number continues to grow tremendously. Through the centre the organization is also reaching out to the local Community.
We are also working with the families of the children we have recruited, children in these case being our entry point to their families so that we can be able to reach out to the whole family, by doing so we empower parents and guardians who are mostly single mothers who trade as commercial sex workers or sell illicit brew and other drugs to earn income to sustain their families. However, we are offering alternative means of earning income by empowering them with skills i.e. hairdressing, Bead work, tailoring, mechanic, carpentry, poultry keeping, empowering them with business training and development, small enterprises development, income generating activities, health education, advocacy etc. so that they can be self-reliant and independent to support their families and improve the standard of living. It’s really inspiring to see lives transform for good.
We are in the process of establishing a Talent academy so that we can tap and nurture talent of children in our program, we are convinced by doing so we will be able to explore full potential and therefore cases of insecurity will decrease s
