Since 2006 Glad’s House has been offering holistic support to street children. The organisation ensures that children and young people in Mombasa have access to safe spaces, trusted adults, educational activities, opportunities to play and have fun and are supported to reach their full potential. In order to reinforce the educational programs of the organisation, Glad’s House will use the mobile school on the streets in different areas in central Mombasa and surroundings. After a successful exploration in november 2015, a team of trainers of Mobile School is currently in Mombasa to implement the school and the educational panels within the organisation.

Besides the implementation of the new mobile school with Glad’s House, we’ll also conduct a follow-up training with our partner in Nairobi. Eleven years and one transfer after the first implementation, our partner Kenya Good Neighbors (KGN) is pulling the mobile school out to street and slum children in the eastern area of Korogocho. During the follow-up the street team of KGN will work with brand new panels and go out together with the mobile school team on the streets for street work.
