KISUMU NDOGO

  • KISUMU NDOGO CENTER

Like Boma Rescue Center, Kisumu Ndogo rehabilitation program is another non - residential – drop in centre that was started in 2006 to rehabilitate street children recruited mainly from the streets of Korogocho, Huruma, Mathare and Kariobangi slums. The project is based in Korogocho slum in close proximity to the project beneficiaries. The difference between Boma Rescue Center and Korogocho street children program is that the latter deals specifically with teen age male drug addicts only. They need specialized counselling and therapy due to their addiction condition. Most of them are beyond the age of primary or elementary school.
