Mission Statement

DEVELOP THE VULNERABLE CHILDREN FOR BETTER FUTURE

THE HAVILLA CHILDREN’S CENTER TEAM

The HCC team is comprised of 17 volunteers, 4 of which work on a full time basis with the 71 children currently enrolled in the programs. There are 9 board members that periodically control the quality of the activities. The fundraising activities are undertaken in Italy by the Idkid team.

Description

EDUCATION PROGRAM

There are 4 classes for children from 3 - 7 years old. The lessons follow the Kenyan national curriculum and children obtain a certificate at the end of their studies. All fulltime teachers have undergone full training from approved teacher training institutions in Kenya: Additionally, the teachers receive training in dealing with HIV infected children.

FEEDING PROGRAM

In addition to breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack during weekdays, the HCC offers a Saturday feeding program for children that are not part of the weekly educational program. This year we have increased the budget to offer a more balanced diet including fresh meat, vegetables and fruit. HCC staff receive training in the dietary needs of children. The HCC staff noticed that many children do not receive regular meals other than those offered by the feeding program.

HEALTHCARE PROGRAM

Children often do not receive healthcare and HCC assures that this is undertaken on a regular basis. It important to assure de-worming tablets for all children, HIV medicine for those who need it, regular check-ups and above all funds for specific medical assistance that parents could not otherwise afford.
