Where do the children live when they are on school breaks?

During school breaks, which are the months of April, August, and December throughout Kenya, the SOSS students walk to the Home Base compound located near the Nakuru marketplace. They live there with responsible adults who cook for them, supervise games and activities, provide medical aid if needed, and keep them safe. Beds, linens, cooking pots, dishes, utensils, games, and sporting equipment have all been donated by caring people. The compound is currently for sale, and the Arvada Covenant Church’s Kids’ Camp has raised $27,000 to help with a down payment for its eventual purchase.The purchase of the Home Base compound is a major SOSS fundraising goal as our students have been through much disruption and displacement in their lives and this stability would provide the best opportunity for their success.
