About the project
Shangilia is a children’s home with an attached elementary school in a slum of Kenya’s capital Nairobi. At present, about 250 children are being cared for in the home which was founded by Kenyans in 1994. In this school young people are provided with a solid future and are supported to become socially responsible members of Kenyan society.
Training is the key to the future in Kenya. In addition, mental health and self-confidence are also important aspects taught at Shangilia. Since its founding 25 years ago, the stage has played an important role at Shangilia. The diverse creative activities on the stage and in front of an audience encourage self-confidence and social skills. The children are encouraged to develop each according to their own individual talents and possibilities. They have a roof over their heads, plenty to eat and are supported by qualified teachers and social workers.
