Safisha Targets to support every vulnerable and forgotten child realize his or her dream through education. Our focus areas are slums and settlements communities where the families and guardians live either under one dollar a day or without access to any dollar at all per day. The Foundation aspires to establish more schools as Safisha Africa Schools and manage them through offering quality education to the underprivileged children in most needy areas of Kenya.
Our work which started in 2008 is spreading and making impact where it is needed in the settlement area where our base is that serves five big slum areas in Nairobi, Kenya. The most disadvantaged families are the single mothers, widows, casual workers and those depending on a one day time life casual work which does not come their way. Single mothers and other families that lack the capacity to provide finances to educate and cater for their children end up being vulnerable to prostitution, drug addiction and other related crimes offences. The children of such families are left hurting and neglected with difficulties in acquiring the best education that is affordable.
The foundation therefore aims at engaging every child from every vulnerable community to have a full life through education without discrimination of gender,race,and tribe.Our vision is to reduce the illiteracy and poverty in the communities that have high rate of poverty so as to have enlighted and better citizens.From the time we started the charity we have been able to assist more than 500 children get affordable education .
Safisha Africa Welfare Foundation is affiliated to the Quaker Church ministering to poor children in Nairobi, Kenya. We need retirees, educators and others with a heart for children to help us with their basic needs and teaching. Safisha Africa Welfare Foundation needs short term and long term missions.
