VLM have been serving in Nairobi, the Kenyan Capital, since 2009. VLM live and work in a leafy suburb of Nairobi, Karen, with the Daughters of Charity. VLM in Nairobi facilitate a camp for children who live in the Bangladesh slum. The children travel to Karen each day by bus to attend camp. At Karen they find open spaces and a safe environment that is not available in Bangladesh.
“I loved the work we did in Nairobi. There is such a need for good role models for the kids in Bangladesh. They have so many responsibilities at home and it was wonderful for them to have a place where they can just be kids and laugh, play, and sing.”
