Over the past decade, the Starkids School and Rescue Centre has served hundreds of disadvantaged children from the Githogoro and Hamara districts of Nairobi Kenya, two of East Africa’s most impoverished and dangerous slums.

Starkid provides quality education for more than 230 children, from pre-K through secondary. Working with community leaders and parents, the Centre is also home to 38 orphans and abused children, victims of AIDS, substance abuse and poverty.
