Project: KE-479, FGCK-Sibilo CDC

Location: Sibilo, Nakuru, Kenya

Your sponsored child lives on the hillside community of Sibilo, home to approximately 600 residents. Typical houses are constructed of tin with dirt floors. The primary ethnic group is Tugen and the most commonly spoken language is Kalenjin/Tugen.

The regional diet consists of maize and cereal. Common health problems in this area include malnutrition, malaria, diarrhea and gastrointestinal illnesses. Most adults in sibilo are unemployed but some work as animal herders, market trader or subsistence farmers and earn the equivalent of $30 per month. This community needs employment opportunities, medical equipment and awareness on the importance of education.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of FGCK-Sibilo CDC to provide your sponsored child with Bible teaching, acting lessons, health screenings, drama classes, community service opportunities, contests and life skills training. The center staff will also provide bee keeping seminars and animal husbandry lessons for the parents or guardians of your sponsored child.
