Who we are

WE ADVOCATE FOR CHILDREN’S EDUCATION, WELFARE, CARE AND RIGHTS IN MATOPENI SLUM.

We are a community based charitable organization making a difference in the lives of hundreds of needy children through rescue, holistic rehabilitation and reintegration back to society. We are a duly registered C.B.O under Kenya Laws mandated to oversee both residential and community based child care programs alongside community empowerment initiatives.

The Boston Children Centre (B.C.C.) has been serving the community of Matopeni since the year 2002 when it was founded by a group of 9 community members lead by Stephen Okwaro – with a motto of “Education for life”

Our rescue home

BCC rescue home has become a home and a hope to street children, orphans, abandoned, abused, HIV & AIDS affected and infected, desperate and neglected children regardless of their religion, sex, color or tribe, who have nowhere to call home and no one to care for them. We then provide them with food, shelter, clothing, education, medical care, spiritual care, mentorship and – most importantly – parental love.

At B.C.C we consider quality integrated education as the best mode of rehabilitation. Through this program, we facilitate full transformation of rescued children from the street by supporting them through formal and informal education until they acquire the highest level of their education including University and training based on their ability.

We also take vulnerable child-mothers and offer them a second chance to acquire basic education, skills training in various trades (mainly tailoring, hair-dressing, knitting and cookery) to complement formal education and equip them with lucrative skills for future self-reliance.

We facilitate safe learning spaces

Starting as a children centre in the early 2002 Boston centre Matopeni is now a part of a wide-scale local community project focusing on education of children from poor families that would otherwise not afforded to. We also rescue , street kids and abused children who are later integrated into the community after transformation period.
