Community Service

23rd March 2024

Korogocho

On Wednesday, 20th March, our group of Community Service students embarked on a visit to the Korogocho slums in Nairobi. We were presented with the opportunity to address the menstrual health concerns among school-going girls. This initiative was prompted by the scarcity of sanitary napkins among the students, leading Braeburn to extend support to these young girls by the distribution of sanitary pads. This event was enabled through the funds raised during the Braeburn annual Cultural Day.

We met over 400 girls aged 13 to15 years from needy families representing Glory, Light & Hope, New Starlight,Emmaus, Torati,and Tirani primary schools. Each girl had their own story.

During the visit, we were greeted warmly with loud cheers and optimistic faces. Therefore, the distribution of chocolates and sanitary napkins became a highlight of the day, making the moment truly remarkable and memorable. Additionally, some of our Year 12’s and 13’s also made encouraging remarks to the youngsters regarding a plethora of diverse and key topics.

Lastly, reflecting on the day's event, it became transparent that even the smallest acts of service can have a profound impact on others. Hence, embracing the spirit of ‘UBUNTU’, I am because we are, demonstrates the crucialness of empathy and compassion for the making of a more considerate and safer environment.

Tabasamu

On Friday 22nd March 2024, in a heartwarming coalition with Swahiba Youth Networks, our School Community Service team collaborated with the Tabasamu Foundation to gift some children (in Kibera) with brand new shoes.

Introduced by the dedicated staff of Swahiba Networks, we joined hands in a touching display of compassion. The team took part in washing the children's feet, symbolising care and respect whilst generously providing them with the new socks and shoes.Two hundred children were awarded with a pair of BATA shoes each.

Additionally, we shared smiles and distributed snacks, spreading joy and nourishment to brighten their day. All the children were filled with excitement thus, we ended the event with cheerful dancing and singing. It was a powerful experience that showcased the beauty of collective service and the impact of simple acts of kindness.
