Kibera Day Care Centre for the Elderly (KDCCE)

 

Kibera Daycare Centre for the Elderly (KDCCE) was established 1989 and registered the same year with

the Ministry of Public Service, Gender, Senior Citizens Affairs and Special Programmes. It was formed to

address the needs and violation of the rights of older members of society in Kibera and other informal

settlement areas of the city of Nairobi where violence, abuse and neglect of the older persons is

rampant. It operates from small Centre and space donated by the local administration within the Kibera

DC compound. They do meet here every Tuesday from 9am to 1pm for weekly activities. We lobby and

advocate for the rights of older persons as well as strengthening their cohesion and voice by establishing

Older Person Associations (OPAs) Older Citizen Monitor Groups (OCMGs).

We provide direct support to an average number of 150 to 250 older persons per week at Daycare

Center. Besides the feeding programme, we have been conducting home visits to the bedridden and

aged older persons, providing livelihood skills, spiritual nourishment and therapy to older persons,socializing to ease loneliness.
