SAMKIN FOUNDATION wishes to partner with INTERNATIONAL PHILANTHROPISTS, CHARITIES and DONOR ORGANIZATIONS for the welfare of Riruta Community in Kenya at the slums of Riruta Ward in Dagoretti Constituency. The main purpose of founding SAMKIN FOUNDATION is to offer humanitarian services to communities of diverse walks of life. However we are seeking partnership with OTHER LIKE MINDED ORGANIZATIONS in order to further our service to children and women who are mostly affected by humanitarian crisis whenever they arise.
The location of our projects is at the heart of the most needy and vulnerable. Many children are orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS pandemic and due to deaths from diverse causes. Being a slum and a community living under abject poverty, girls are more prone to early marriages, early sexual intercourse and early pregnancies as they practice it for income generation. Men, especially youth and young fathers who are jobless, result to drug addiction and alcoholism which in turns result to unruly behaviors and insecurity. There has been many cases of extra judicial killings, sexual molesting, raping, prostitution, sodomy and other forms of ill behaviors. Recently a group of ten primary school children were caught in a house playing sex, five girls and five boys. Night clubs and dances are frequent and they promote ill behaviors. A number of aged grandmothers are left to cater for grandchildren after their parents’ death. The settlement pattern of densely population is a great threat to hygiene and development. The slums’ houses are built upon public land and some on individual land. Several communities are homeless too and opt to be street families. This being the situation, there are many children born in the slum who know no home apart from the street. These street children become more grieved in life and feel much rejected and discriminated forthwith; they result into formation of gangs and become radicalized.
Therefore there is great need for us to partner with international organizations like yours in order to create an ending solutions to these communities.
