Who We Are
Friends of Ngong Road (FoNR) and Ngong Road Children Association (NRCA) are sister organizations with a shared mission, principles and values. We hold a deep belief in the value of education and the hope it can bring to young lives.
The devastation caused by HIV/AIDS in Kenya has left the country with approximately 1 million orphaned children and many more living with a surviving HIV+ parent. Children in this program all live in the slums of Dagoretti, Nairobi where the median household income is under two dollars per day. Approximately 50% of the children in the program are orphans and the other 50% live with a surviving HIV+ parent. About 5% of children in the program are themselves HIV+.
