Light and Hope Initiative- Charity organization working in the informal settlements of Nairobi-Kenya

Nairobi, Kenya Charity

Light and Hope Initiative is a non-governmental charity working to benefit the most vulnerable community members in the informal settlements in Kenya through our integrated programs such as:

1. Education
We partner with individuals, churches and organizations to support the vulnerable children in Mathare slums through child sponsorship program and paying for their school fees, two meals each day, school uniforms, and their medication. We regularly do intentional visits to their homes to follow up on their progress guided by our child protection policy (CPP) to ensure the children are always safe. We also nurture and develop the talents in our children.


2. Empowerment
Through our empowerment programs, we create jobs and a reliable income for parents of our students and other community members who have little to no formal education. We show thousands of people from impoverished backgrounds that they are resource-rich in ability, determination, ingenuity, and motivation.

3. Restoration
Being whole means being healthy. We carry out Health initiatives, advanced physical, mental, emotional, relational and spiritual health support programs in the community.
Within neighborhoods, community development starts with relationships. Through our community engagement program, we engage and equip one community member to equip and mobilize others. We help communities identify their needs, evaluate their God-given resources and find solutions on improving their lives. For example, community gardens, clean-up days, or construction of public restrooms.

Through Education, Mentorship and Empowerment we set these families on improved trajectories and break the inter-generational cycle of poverty that has long existed here in Mathare slums.

SVI - Acacia

Эльн, Франция Others...

The House for Volunteers (HfV) hosts the volunteers engaged in short or long term volunteering projects with other associations or local structures partners of PSI in the region of Occitanie. The HfV, social residence for volunteers, (Civic Services, EVS, VSI, etc.) will have rooms and apartments to cater for their needs.

During this project, you will have the opportunity to take part in a number of activities. Every volunteer will participate in each activity according to a rotating system. So you will be able to engage in all the association’s “services” for a week. At the end
of your observation and after a short discussion with your supervisor, the team members and the other volunteers, you will choose the activity of your choice.

Every volunteer can find a field that will really interest him/her. We are aware that sometimes the project’s description and the reality can be approached differently depending on each individual. This is why we hope that all volunteers will be able to observe and take part to the activities and areas represented in
the association for a few days.

Therefore, communication is essential. We want volunteers to fully engage in this experience and come out of it with a fulfilled purpose and the feeling of having contributed to a project they wanted to achieve. After these few days of observation, an individual and then collective meeting will be organised to analyse the different objectives and implement them while respecting each other’s objectives. This way, a volunteer will be able to choose to participate more in one activity than another while not neglecting other services.

SVI - Don Bosco

Гансхорен, Бельгия Working with kids

Don Bosco was one of the best educators of modern times as he developed success-oriented teaching methods. Every youth has a huge potential. The whole educational work is done by pupil’s parents, teachers, educators and volunteers altogether. The objective is to make sure the youth is in the best conditions to experience in a positive way his abilities.
Thus, the youth feels empowered because he realizes that he has true abilities, gains self-esteem and throws himself into his homework because he enjoys doing it.
The main objective is to help these young people to achieve academic, human and social success through three cornerstones:
■ Reason: discussing on issues drives them to use their abilities to think, to make decisions and to get involved.
■ Religion: as a way to look for meaning in their lives.
■ Love: which is shown by the educators through being a loving, strict and attentive person and by the youth by being grateful.
■ This teaching method is based on confidence in youths’ positive future.
