January 2020 brought exciting news for a long-stay resident, Tashley Shaniz, who has lived at the rescue centre since she was a baby.
Fantastic news! A family home has been found for Emmaculate with her uncle and cousins. She departs Future Stars for the next chapter in her life.
Future Stars is NOT a children’s home. The hope is always to find a family home for each of the children in the care of the rescue centre. Here are a couple of success stories as Florence and Emmanuel find their new homes.
Following the demolition of her home, Grace found herself exploited by someone tasked with keeping her safe. Thankfully, Future Stars could step in and offer her sanctuary. Grace is the fourth child making her home at the centre as a direct consequence of the government’s road construction project through Kibera.
Another boy, Emmanuel, joins Future Stars having been displaced during demolition in Kibera. We hope he will be reunited with his family soon but, for now, he remains safe at the centre.
The destruction of a section of Kibera to make way for a link road has affected thousands. For two boys, Future Stars has provided imperfect security amidst tragedy. Find out what happened …
The decision to provide a home for a child is often a complex one and, in the case of Christine, has been ongoing for many months. However, on Jan 28th 2018, Future Stars became home to another vulnerable child. We hope for a bright future for this resilient 9-year-old.
