LUNCHBOWL NETWORK - KIBERA

At The Priory one of our charities that we support is the Lunchbowl Network. It was set up in 2006 in response to the plight of the orphaned and vulnerable children in the Kibera slum Nairobi, in Kenya.
Since then the Lunchbowl Network have helped to regularly feed and take care of 450 orphaned and vulnerable children. They have a dedicated team of 70 carers, all mothers living in the Kibera, who voluntarily look after these orphaned and vulnerable children on a daily basis within their extended households.
The Lunchbowl Network also provides a rescue programme for vulnerable girls and boys who are at a very high risk of abuse. These children are individually sponsored and now receive an education in schools where they can flourish and be given hope for their future.

 

In May 2013 Lunchbowl opened a kindergarten in Kibera for the orphaned and vulnerable young children aged 4-6 years old, providing learning through play for 60 children who also attend our feeding programme.

The money raised by The Priory is used to provide food for the daily feeding programme in the slum. £1 pays for 3 hot nutritional meals, cooked on site in the slum by our team of carers.
