Nuru Center uses the following programs to achieve our mission:
Nuru Center is involved in making sure that the poorest in the community can afford to get a decent education. As most of the primary education is free, Nuru Center will ensure that students will be able to attend secondary school and beyond. This is achieved through the generosity of individuals or organizations who share our vision of 'helping today's youth for a better tomorrow'. Read more about the Elimu Scholarship Program here...
A program aimed at providing a holiday meal to the poorest in the communities we serve. Kikapu is a Swahili work for "basket". We provide a kikapu full of food items to the poor so that they too can have a decent meal for the holiday. Read more about the Kikapu Program here...
The mid-range plans were to purchase a farm that would generate income to defray much of our operating expenses. The long term goals are have an orphanage and community center that will have a great impact in shaping the future of the thousands of children in rural areas. The beneficiaries will learn many skills in the farm that they can use to better their families or even to make a living for themselves.
The community center will have amenities like a library, computer lab, organized sports, and counselors that the local children can use for free. This will go a long way in providing structured guidance that the children in rural Kenya lack. With structured guidance, we can start to nature their talents and skills at an early age and counsel them on a path to a successful future.
A program designed to raise the HIV/AIDS awareness in rural Kenya and help remove the stigma associated with the epidemic. Removing this stigma will enable people in these communities to talk openly about the HIV/AIDS, increase preventive practices, increase the number of people being tested, and reduce the number of children born with HIV/AIDS.
