Young girls, sometimes just nine years old, falling pregnant and finding themselves facing desperate and life-threatening choices which no child should ever have to face: isolation, homelessness, prostitution and abortion.
This is the reality in Kenya - the child-mother.
At The Beehive, we are taking action to transform the lives of some of the most at-risk young mums and their babies. Based in the town of Nakuru, The Beehive is a home which provides vital care and support.
Additionally, the girls receive education, either academic or vocational depending upon their individual ability or interest, as well as learning essential life skills required by both the traditions of their culture and the demands of an increasingly-developing third world nation.
The babies will also receive education once they reach an appropriate age, meantime being able to grow and progress in a loving, caring and stable environment.
Unfortunately, The Beehive was broken into on the 17/11/16. Although nothing of too much value was taken, a lot of damage was caused with a large hole being made in the roof and the ceiling as well as a glass window being smashed. Unlike what many of us are use too this isn't covered by home insurance or landlords and Jane and Alan now need to pay for the damage. If you could spare anything large or small this would be greatly appreciated.
