Immanuel Afrika (I Afrika) is a grassroots organisation which provides holistic care for boys who had been left to fend for themselves on the harsh, unforgiving streets of Nairobi. Directed by Peter Nduati (Opi), the centre is a registered Kenyan charity and works in close collaboration with the Kenyan Children’s Office, the Kenya police force and numerous other children’s centres. Relationships with street-boys are fostered through an outreach program, and boys who are willing are taken in to receive detox, counselling, education and a Christian home. Wherever possible, boys are re-integrated into their families and supported to stay in school. The centre is currently home to more than 50 boys between 5 and 18 years of age.
Genesis sponsors the I Afrika boys school uniforms annually. IAfrika has recently obtained Australian Tax Deductibility, so donations can be sent by following the link below.
