About Us The Mwelu Foundation
The Mwelu Foundation
Our vision is of a peaceful world in which all children realize their full potential in societies that provide hope, opportunity and respect.
Our mission is to nurture the talent of children in the poorest communities of Nairobi by providing training in creative arts and essential life skills. By providing children with a voice and promoting education we hope to break the cycle of poverty and violence that exists in our communities
This project is split up in two sectors: the creative pool(set up projects, workshops, and trainings) and the Trainer pool(giving skills to Totos in schools)
We give training in video and photo making fields to children from three schools near the foundation in Mathare Valley slums
The Library was opened in 2012; it has 2 spaces, and offers a wide variety of resources to both primary and high school students
