We would like to inform sponsors and other interested parties on the situation in the school run by ABC in Kariobangi in Nairobi. A formal examination has been instigated on financial matters in ABC Kenya. ABC Iceland will provide all neccessary assistance regarding the examination. Hopefully all school work will commence shortly in new quarters after the old school ground was shut down due to health reasons.

NGO's co-ordination board has begun examining financial matters and other aspects of the work that's being performed in ABC Kenya over recent years. This action was set in motion following the dismissal of ABC Kenya's general manager.

NGO-board's employees arrived yesterday in the school in Kariobangi to conduct formal discussions and gather information and files. ABC Iceland wil do everything in it's power to assist this examination.

The NGO-board representatives inspected the school building and nearby grounds and came to the conclusion that health issues were severly lacking. The NGO-board closed down the area and now ABC is looking into the matter of different housing so school work can begin again.

Students are currently on a week long vacation. Day schoolers are staying with parents but children who live in the dormatories are residing with relatives or friends. Hopefully a suitable new location will be found before the children's week vacation is over.

 

Pastor Samuel Ingimarsson, board member of ABC Children's Aid and his wife Asta Juliusdottir have from May 8th, 2015 taken over as leaders of ABC Kenya. They worked with ABC for a year in Nairobi, from 2012-2013 and know the operation very well.

The board decided to trust Pastor Samuel and Asta to lead the work in Kenya. Thorunn and her husband, Samuel Lusiru Gona, have worked for ABC in Kenya from 2006. The board thanks them for their work.

In 2015  a new floor will be built to the ABC school in Nairobi. The funding comes from the yearly fundraising Children-help-Children in Iceland.

  • Street children a shelter and later a permanent home in an ABC village.
  • Poor children opportunity to go to school.
  • Sick children an access to medical care.
  • Children without future a hope of better life with further education.
  • Needy and suffering children tender care.

Welcome to ABC Children's Aid International website. Our main purpose is to be a channel of encouragement, equipping, empowering and multiplication through quality relationships with ABC donor offices and field locations.
