Naka Satellite Home
Boys just off the streets of Nakuru come to Naka Satellite to begin their rehabilitation process. Their time living at Naka is the first stage of the Streets of Hope program and boys can remain at Naka for up to a few years. When they are far enough along in the rehabilitation process, they move to the Section 58 main site.
In January of 2012, the 22 boys at Naka were able to join formal school after 8 months of rehabilitation and home-based school. In the words of the boy’s house father, John, “The boys were too excited about the fulfillment of the promise of taking them back to school.” The Naka boys expressed their gratitude by cleaning the compound of an elderly woman who was sick in the neighborhood.
The boys at Naka continue to improve in their academics. During the last school year, 19 boys made it in the top 10 in their class and the 3 who were not a part of that group are showing great improvement! 2 of the Naka boys were also able to move to the main site, Section 58, making the number of boys at Naka now 20. Naka has a very able drama/poetry/music team. The boys enjoy using their talents.
