Parenting Education Programme
HOPE also co-ordinates over 1000 volunteers (members of KCOC) who provide educational, medical and recreational services to the children at the Glenhope Place of Safety, National Children’s Home, Marigold Place of Safety, Strathmore Children's’ Home, Walkers Place of Safety and The Sir John Golding Rehabilitation Center. Our wide ranging recreational activities provide the children with constructive avenues for developing motor and social skills. The goal of each volunteer has been to become like a big brother or sister to two or three children. The individual focus on these children has changed them radically in terms of their self-esteem, confidence and social skill. In addition, the relationships developed with the volunteers have led to many of the children spending holidays or other special occasions with them at their homes. Four children have now been adopted as a result of these special relationships.
