About Us

We work with children at the EARLY CHILDHOOD PROGRAM in Kenya, Riruta, Dagoretti Division. We have a resource centre for the community and the youth. The children of pre-school age are taught Basic Literacy at the centre. The mother of the children have formed a group to start Income generating Activities. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND Child Survival Initiative – Group is a Community Based Organization (CBO) formed in the year 2000 but registered in the year 2003. The organization was started as a charitable group by a group of professionals who felt that they had a role to play in helping the poor communities to improve the quality of life especially those ravaged by HIV and AIDS. The group used to give out handouts to poor families within slum communities of Kibera and Kawangware but came to realize that what these communities requires was not handouts but a sustainable approach to addressing issues affecting them. The group which is composed of Health Workers (Doctors, Nurses and Clinical Officers), Community Workers, Administrators and Secretaries decided to come up with an organization that would not only address problems facing the children but would also be committed to providing health support and economic empowerment of the HIV and AIDS affected and infected members of our society. The organization is also committed to literacy raising through creation of resource centers within slum communities.
