The kids at the Ongoza Njia Community Centre Homework Club, in Huruma, a slum town in the outskirts of Nairobi, have bright smiles, mischievous expressions and an eager need to explore, discover and learn. Poverty interrupts their childhood in various ways. But the volunteers and workers at the centre give of their time to bring the smile of childhood back onto their faces. Most of the time, the kids are the ones who have much to teach the volunteers, about hope, endurance, appreciation of what we have and an ardent desire to be alive and to make it no matter the adversities.
