Kawangware Vision Center
Since 2008, NextAid has collaborated with the Kawangware Vision Centre (KVC) in the Kawangware slum bordering Nairobi, Kenya. KVC is a locally created and managed organization started by former street children to provide positive opportunities to get youths off the streets and support vulnerable children at risk of engaging in street life. The organization runs a micro-business making silkscreened gift bags out of recycled paper. NextAid has partnered with KVC to build a new "green" workshop and multipurpose facility to expand their operation and ultimately serve more youth. More info: www.nextaid.org/kawangware.htm
