Globally, there are millions of children living on the street without care and supervision from a parent or guardian.
The causes of this phenomenon are varied, but are often related to domestic, economic, or social disruption; including, but not limited to, poverty, breakdown of homes and/or families, political unrest, sexual, physical or emotional abuse, domestic violence, substance abuse, and sexual orientation or gender identity issues.

 

Sodzo and local partners are beginning with 30 of these children in Meru County, Kenya in a holistic intervention aimed at helping the children in area towns. The program is based on a 73-acre farm, where the children will discover a safe place to detox from glue addiction, learn farming and other essential skills, and be prepared for reunification with their own families or good Samaritans from the community.
