The Bethlehem Community Centre (BCC) was established in 1990.  Soweto is mainly inhabited by people displaced from other slum areas of Nairobi.

The main focus of Bethlehem Centre is to provide care for destitute children, the majority of whom are orphans as a result of HIV/AIDS or conflict. The children’s home provides 100 orphans with care, medical attention, an education, and training. Bethlehem Community Centre supplies primary schooling to 210 children, including both the resident children, and children from the surrounding community.

North Americans you can sponsor these children

Bethlehem Community Centre is a shining light, a haven in the filth and darkness.

BCC is situated in the Embakasi Division of Nairobi, in the Soweto informal settlement of Kayole – home to over 160,000 people of whom 95% have an annual income far below the UN poverty level of $400.00 US. Soweto has no water, electricity, or sanitation.The situation at Soweto is deplorable – sewage runs openly down the street, housing consists of shacks created out of rubbish; garbage is everywhere, children in rags run barefoot through the neighborhood, unemployed men loiter in groups, trudging back and forth into the city in their fruitless attempts to find work.
