Destiny Shapers CBO is a community based organization located in Korogocho slums in Nairobi Kenya. It operates in three main thematic areas namely: Basic Education,Parental Empowerment and Health/Nutrition. Our objectives include: To ensure children get quality and relevant foundation in their Early Years as a way of being grounded in basic education. 40% of children of school going age in the urban slums cannot access basic education due to lack of enough learning centers. We provide at least 2 meals in a day as way of ensuring no child goes to bed hungry. This acts as a motivating factor for them to come to school as well as boasting their health. We minimize cases of malnutrition. Destiny Shapers CBO was started in the year 2014 with 23 kids and 3 volunteers. The number has risen to 160 with 14 volunteers serving as staffs. We have gotten two grants so far with no donor yet.I am certain we can get a number of donors if the right proposal is done.
