THE DEEP SEA SLUM


The Deep Sea slum is located in Highridge, Parklands area. This barely 2 acre piece of land is occupied by over 12,000 residents who are mainly youth or young adults and children.
The slum is not commonly known to many Kenyans since it is uniquely sandwiched between very well developed and affluent residential and business locations of Highridge, Westlands, Parklands and Muthaiga.
The adult residents mainly supply casual labour force in form of househelps, cooks, guards to these plush neighborhoods.
A tin shack that residents here call home is rented for between 1,200kshs to 1,500kshs per month. This is approximately 12 to 15 dollars per month.

The tin shacks do not have toilets and running water which also makes the area prone to cholera and other water borne diseases.

INTRODUCTION
Afrikasi Kenya Kindergarten which is one of the show case projects of Afrikasi Kenya C.B.O was founded in 2016 to cater mainly for the needy and disadvantaged children from the Deep Sea slums but outside the slum environment so that they can be exposed to the other side of life and slowly erase the ‘slum’ mentality.
Currently the Kindergarten has a total of 70 children, 90% of whom come from the Deepsea Slums. The rest are from the lower Kabete and the neighboring environs.
The Kindergarten provides a unique, serene, peaceful and clean environment for the children, a well balanced diet feeding program which includes tea break and lunch, neat classrooms, sporting and co-curricular activities and very competent Early Childhood Development Education (ECDE) qualified teachers.
It also provides very subsidized fees because it mainly caters for children from disadvantaged and needy families.
