AHLEN FOUNDATION IN KENYA ”Our vision … Building brighter futures for children in Kenya”. In Ahlen Foundation, we equip and empower children and young people for a brighter future through provision, protection and preparation, ensuring that they have the opportunity to fulfil their potential and make a difference in their families and communities. Today’s world faces global challenges, which require global solutions. These interconnected global challenges call for far-reaching changes in how we think and act for the dignity of fellow human beings. It is not enough for education to produce individuals who can read, write and count. Education must be transformative and bring shared values to life. It must cultivate an active care for the world and for those with whom we share it. Education must fully assume its central role in helping people to forge more just, peaceful, tolerant and inclusive societies.
Another God-inspired day in Kenya. This afternoon and tonight we had the privilege to share with the beautiful, lovely children in a party at The Salvation Army Kabete Children’s Home in Nairobi. The home provides a place of safety for children, many of whom are orphans. Kabete caters for 65 children aged 3 to 18 years. Remember, the best place for the child is with his or her family, so if not …what’s next? Let’s work together to Give a Child a Future…
The 2018 plan of “Rofaqa” initiative includes the provision of comprehensive care for orphans it sponsors around the world, the provision of additional services to the sponsors in various fields and the expansion of major projects for orphans. One of the most important services offered by Qatar Charity is improving the living conditions of poor families, food supply, psychological treatment and support and providing school supplies for children with disabilities, especially orphans, and economic empowerment of mothers of orphans by helping them to create income-generating activities.
Somalia tops the list of countries in terms of the number of sponsored orphans, while countries such as Palestine, Syria, Sudan and Iraq represent the focus group in terms of benefiting from the financing of social protection services. Qatar Charity and Ahklen Foundation launched the “making people smile” initiative at the end of 2014 and its goal is to address the issues of children and orphans around the world through co-operation and co-ordination with ministries and institutions concerned with social work in recipient countries.
