Project HAND UP is based in Nairobi, the financial hub for East Africa and the center of most things “happening” in Kenya.
We perform at primary schools, secondary schools, orphanages; and, when in rural areas or slums, we perform in outdoor community gathering places.
PHASE I of the project took us to Nakuru, Karen, Ngong, Rift Valley, Western Province and all over the Central Province. Phase II had us working primarily at Kajiado area primary schools.
The current curriculum is designed for English and Kiswahili, which makes it possible for our work to expand to reach the majority of people in East Africa.
It is imperative that we secure funding for additional dialects to be translated, so we can reach outlying and rural areas of Kenya – often the most affected and at risk. There are over 40 language groups in Kenya (which is approximately the same size as Texas.)
Our goal is to bring our live program into Uganda, Tanzania, and Zambia and wherever invited.
