THE NEST HOME

The John Cockerill Foundation supports the association The Nest Home (Kenya).

The Nest Home is a project located in the south of Kenya, at Nairobi and Limuru,  across three installations. Its objective is to take into its charge children whose parents have died or been imprisoned (whether the children were born in prison or not).The association puts in place processes of assistance, social and economic reintegration (welcome, medical care, schooling…). There are currently around a hundred children and some thirty infants, for whom the degree of trauma has to be reduced, under the charge of the association.

Without finance from the African state, the internationally recognized association survives thanks to funding which essentially comes from abroad (Germany and Austria). The association wished to become independent in energy terms, reduce its energy costs and, on top of this, store and treat rainwater.

The John Cockerill Foundation has decided to offer the association an installation for supplementary energy and for water supply. It is also organizing a collection of children’s clothing (0 to 15 years), of educational items (EN) of computer equipment etc…
