Mirror of Hope C.B.O is registered with the government of Kenya under the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Services. Since its inception, it has been a Community Based Organization dedicated to serving AIDS affected children from Kibera Slum who have either lost both parents, or one parent with the second infected.
These children who otherwise had simply lost hope in life were formerly receiving care and support from an organization that later abandoned them. This meant that the provision of Education, Life Skills, Material and Moral Support to these children ended and as a result most of them dropped out of schools while others faced a myriad of problems that no one could respond to.
It was at this point that Thomas and Judy Nyawir, touched by the plight of these deserving children, decided to intervene, establishing an organization that provided emotional support and an avenue for change and a brighter future. This is how Mirror of Hope C.B.O was born.
Thomas has his own remarkable journey which gives an insight on how he ended up forming Mirror of Hope. Read more about his story here.
