Tens of thousands of children live in the Nairobi streets with no care from adults. The main objective of the project was to rescue children from the streets and enable them full participation in society. The project was run between November, 2010 and February, 2012. It supported formal education at the Bosco Boys centre primary school, as well as plenty of informal educational trainings (in the spheres of agriculture, cooking, carpentry, welding) and free-time activities (sport competitions, cultural performances, field trips, camps, etc.).
The school year 2011 (from January to December) was finished by 329 pupils, while the final graduation exams were taken by 34 ones. As many as 35 graduates were paid school fees at secondary and vocational technical schools, so that they could deepen their education. The project also covered parents and relatives of the children. Thanks to the visits of social workers in families, 145 new boys living in the streets were introduced to the rehabilitation programme of the centre. In April, 2011, a Bosco Boys pupil Peter Mwaura visited Slovakia, together with the director of the centre, Father Sebastian, SDB. During their journey through Slovakia, they met many friends of Salesian missions in Stupava, Žilina, Námestovo, Prešov, Banská Bystrica and Bratislava. In February, 2012, the Bosco Boys centre was visited by the Ambassador of Slovakia in Kenya, Michal Mlynár, who attended the final moments of the traditional football event, the Jesus Cup. During the visit, he unveiled the memorial board to thank the project donors.
The project was supported by budgetary resources of the Slovak Republic through SlovakAid, the official programme of development assistance, by the sum of 135,000 euro.
