Outreach Services

Because the children at Mama Fatuma tend to enjoy a higher quality of life than many children in Eastleigh neighborhood and the Mathare slum, some parents make the mistake of abandoning their children in the hope that they will be better cared for at an institution.  To address this problem and growing need in the surrounding community, Mama Fatuma’s provides outreach care to 21 children in the community.  Mama Fatuma targets children in the most difficult situations and helps their parents by assisting with school fees and providing supplemental food for the children.  In this way Mama Fatuma has helped eliminate any incentive a parent has to abandon his or her child while simultaneously uplifting the community.
