About The Cause
The Cheery Children Education Centre (CCEC) is located in the heart of Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya at Mashimoni. The founder of CCEC could not ignore the plight of vulnerable and destitute children in the slum who to some extent are neglected and abandoned thus fail to get the basic vital need Education. They are a small educational institution offering humanitarian assistance and caring for the needs of the poverty stricken children in Nairobi's Kibera slum, the largest slum in Africa by population and size. This is where these children learn to know the value of a family in which they are cared for, loved and educated until such a time they will be able to take care of themselves and their own future families in the society.
Profound poverty, competition for scarce resources, disease, conflict, addictions and lack of educational opportunities put these children at extreme risk for illiteracy, illness, hopelessness, abuse and the meager resources accessible is the common definition of the urban poor child living in the Kenyan slums. Few opportunities exist for the children of Kibera and surrounding slums that allow them to learn and grow to their potential.
This featured campaign provides something many of us take for granted on a daily basis, clean water. By having this covered, the administration at CCEC can focus on what they do best, teach, instead of raising donations to cover clean water delivery.
