Raising children is no easy task. Raising children in Kibera adds even more challenges. That’s why we want to support the parents of the children we support through parenting courses. Over eight weeks, parents gathered in our church hall to discuss the challenges of parenting in Kibera, to share their experiences and wisdom.
Different guest speakers blessed us each week with wisdom on a different topic, rooting all of the teaching in the bible. The parents covered topics such as parenting in God’s way, affirmation, assertiveness and consistency, understanding our children’s world and being available to our children.
The course was really well attending with between 60 to 80 parents attending each week. Congratulations go to social worker Margaret and her team who organised the course, the top-notch guest speakers and of course, the parents who invested precious time to improve their own parenting.
