Member since: October 2015

We are a small grassroot NGO. We have the aim to provide education and support for street children from the Mathare slum in Nairobi. This tour helps us to fund the school fees. All our tour guides are former beneficiaries of the project. They have been trained as tour guides in collaboration with the National Museum of Kenya. Through the income of the tour our guides are able to finance their studies or start their own business. All proceeds from the tours go to the guides and to support street children.
