Death of parents, poverty, alcoholism, domestic violence, family breakdown and lack of love push children to the streets. It is estimated that there are over 60,000 street children in Nairobi. The Koinonia community has a few rescue centers for them where, from April up to December, they learn to live as a family and prepare to be welcomed in one of their houses in January of the following year. One of them is in Kibera slum.
