Hearns – Kidsworld Center – Maili Saba
Hearns Kidsworld – New Training Center.
With the new building complete, Hearns Kidsworld Center was now ready to take a big step forward.
To be able to increase the skills training center to accommodate 16 girls at a time, as well as continue
caring for street kids, some additional funds would be required …
Hearns Kidsworld – ‘Fashion Center’
In line with Kidsworld’s vision of growth through achievement, Hellen took the bold step of turning the
old training facility into a small ‘fashion’ shop, where the clothes that were being made whilst training,
could be displayed and in this way advertise the Center and attract buyers.
The additional revenue would be used to subsidise the new larger training center and at the same time
also boost the care for street kids.
Not only has this become a reality, but is also an example and challenge to other Kidsworld Centers,
to dream bigger and grow, founded on own effort and achievement.

In 2010 we met Hellen Mwashi the leader of the Hearns Centre in Maili Saba, a village in the Kitale district.
At that time they were in a small rented room where they were training 4 girls at a time in basic sewing skills.
We saw the opportunity to help grow their centre as well as benefiting from Hellen’s knowledge and skills.

With the growth in Skills Training opportunities it was soon obvious that we needed a bigger centre, as well as the number of Street Kids the Centre was caring for having grown to 10 kids, we erected a small building consisting of 3 rooms, which would see us through the next few years.
At the end of 2015 we had our first ‘official’ graduation for six very proud young girls, who over the past year not only learnt a life skill themselves, but whose efforts during their year of training, greatly assisted in the care of Hearns Centre’s Street Kids.
