Welcome to DCSCP *
Dagoretti Corner Street Children Programme * is a Christian run charity, dedicated to the prevention and alleviation of poverty and the promotion of education amongst children and young people in Kenya, specifically (but not exclusively) those in Dagoretti Corner. Dagoretti Corner is a shanty town near Kibera on the outskirts of Nairobi in Kenya.
The project started when 3 churches in rural Gloucestershire formed a group to raise funds to feed street children in Nairobi,after two of their members visited Nairobi on holiday and were touched by the needs they saw.Subsequently, land was purchased and a building group established who were able to acquire charity status in the UK.This group is based at Wotton Baptist Church and its trustees are all members of that church. Since its purchase the land has been put to use by providing living accommodation for rehabilitating street children, and running educational and feeding programmes. Part of the land is being cultivated to provide food and chickens are also being reared. A bore hole has been dug and new latrines built, and we now have electricity.
All money raised goes straight into the charity, none is used for fundraising expenses.
