We started our Daycare program because many women and young mothers in kakuma refugee camp are unable to continue their studies or join some training at various institutions or organizations in the camp just because of of the kids. For example last year, many women and young mothers dropped out because they could not manage to pursue their trainings because of the kids. This is the reason why THERE IS HOPE AFRICA intervenedThe Daycare project help the refugee women and young mothers to pursue the training or studies in a good environment with no kids. At the Daycare we have care takers who are there to make sure that all the kids are safe and provide them with breakfast
