|Napenda Kuishi and St Johns Korogocho - Charity Trip|
The annual Charity trip sponsored by Sunworld Safaris took place on the 23.06.2012. A total of 47 pupils and 4 caretakers participated in the day trip to Lake Nakuru National Park. The selection was done from 02 rehabilitation centers. St. Johns Korogocho sent 26 pupils and Napenda Kuishi pupils 21 . St John’s Korogocho caters for children who have just been rescued from the streets. After a short period of rehabilitation, they are transferred to Napenda Kuishi Children’s Home about 40 km away from the Slum area in Korogocho where they are given further counseling and taken to school.
The trip provided a good opportunity for the children to interact and exchange invaluable ideas. It was evident that the recently rescued boys from Korogocho slums envied the already rehabilitated boys of Napenda Kuishi.
The children were picked early in the morning from their various stations and transferred to Lake Nakuru National park through the scenic rift valley with a brief stop at the Great Rift Valley Escarpment . Upon arrival in Nakuru, they were given a brief lecture on the importance of wildlife environmental conservation at the KWS education center thereafter they proceeded on game drive in the National Park which lasted 3hrs.
The children were treated to a 3 course Lunch at Flamingo Hill Camp, this was a good and rare opportunity for the children enjoy a decent meal.
At the end of the trip they expressed their gratitude to Sunworld Safaris for facilitating such a wonderful trip .
