Beroya Children's Christian Foundation is a project intended to supplement and support the ministry being done by Beroya Church Nairobi Githurai. After the church established we observed that most families in the area were living below poverty levels. Apart from the need for the desperate need of the Saving Gospel the area need support. Most family relied in on illegal businesses such as making and selling illicit brews, sale of drugs, all forms of crime. Those who have legal sources of income were doing menial jobs which cannot even afford them any of the basic needs, such as shelter, food, clothing medical and education.
The most affected people are the children, who most of them came from single parent families and unstable families. Most children cannot afford to go school even with education being subsidized by the government. None of the families can afford any form of medical cover or services. This affect the quality of the children life leading most them entering them in the same circle of life, of getting children out of wedlock, engaging in illegal activities to survive.
We therefore decided to establish our focus from bottom that is starting at the foundation, hence we saw the necessity to find a way to break the circle by helping the children. The focus is to change the trajectory of the future this children by intervening in three ways.

Medical coverage is one of the most difficult thing to find. Most families rely on pain medications and self diagnosing. The medical services are hard to come by.
We intend to put each family that has child under the nation medical insurance cover. This cover will allow the whole family to enjoy basic medical services from all government facilities and some low cost private medical services.
