HISTORY BACKGROUND

The MCDC Project was started in July 1995, immediately when Rev .Nuthu and his wife took over leadership of KAG New Mathare Church by buying a loaf of bread to twelve (12) street children who came to help clean the compound, assisted by the church caretaker Mr. Douglas Macharia.

From that day Rev. Peter Nuthu and Mrs Jane Nuthu had compassion for the street children and continued to buy them bread every Saturday when they came to help work in the church compound.

Rev Peter Nuthu likewise volunteered to offer money every Saturdays for tea and porridge for these children who continued to come on Saturdays for counseling, eating and bathing. The feeding exercise attracted more street children who increased by dozens every month. In 1999, we began a daily feeding program. We grouped the children according to their abilities and started informal education and vocational training for 130 children. In the year 2000, the number continued to increase day by day as children were willing to change from street life to normal life.

Today we are feeding and educating over 700 underprivileged children in formal primary school and secondary (high) school. We are also helping those who have finished high school by taking them to colleges and universities.

This is made possible by donations from our friends. Our prayer is that they get employment to help sustain themselves and their families. We give thanks to God for all those that have stretched their hands of kindness to make it possible for these children to achieve education and get employment to sustain themselves. This can be made possible by your love, donations and prayers.

FROM THE STREETS OF NAIROBI TO THE UNIVERSITY

When we had no hope for the future, looking for food and education, we found a church in Huruma where some other children were having lunch. We were welcomedand from that day, KAG MCDC became our home. We were taught to love and trust in God and thereafter we started attending school. We went through primary, Secondary and now we are in different universities in Kenya all through the support of KAG MCDC. We thank all our sponsors for their support to us and to all other children in KAG MCDC schools.
