SILAS KOECH – Berur Street Care Community Based Organization

Date grant awarded: August 25, 2018

Berur Street Care is a community-based organization located in Eldoret Municipality in Kenya. This project empowers very vulnerable mothers and children, providing them with skills and an education sponsorship which keeps them off the streets and helps provide them skills to build a dignified livelihood. This project was started out of a realization that there was a growing number of street families in Eldoret.

The Berur center provides shelter and a rehabilitation place for these neglected members of our society, and will be teaming up with The Pollination Project to provide these children with tailoring skills.
