Support an orphanage for children in need whilst experiencing Africa!
Shangilia is a children’s home with an attached elementary school in a slum of Kenya’s capital Nairobi. At present, about 250 children are being cared for in the home which was founded by Kenyans in 1994. In our school young people are provided with the opportunity of a solid future and are supported to become socially responsible members of Kenyan society.
Education is the key to a brighter future in Kenya. In addition, mental health and self-confidence are also important aspects taught at Shangilia. Since its founding 25 years ago, the stage has played an important role at Shangilia. The diverse creative activities on the stage and in front of an audience encourage self-confidence and social skills. The children are encouraged to develop each according to their own individual talents and possibilities. They have a roof over their heads, plenty to eat and are supported by qualified teachers and social workers.
In Shangilia, visitors receive a look into the day-to-day activities at the school. We provide a guesthouse where you can stay and experience Kenya. Furthermore, you can use the skatepark, play football with the children or use the playground.
We will be happy to give you tours to the Giraffe Center, the Sheldrick Elephant orphanage house in Nairobi, the Karen Blixon house or the Karua forest. We will try to comply with any special request.
We offer a four- or a ten-day tour to either Lake Naivasha or Massai Mara.
Breakfast included, lunch or dinner for sale, drinking water for sale.
