Education for the Elderly

 Kibera Day Care for the Elderly (KDCCE) believes in the importance of lifelong learning. The education program provides various opportunities for the elderly to continue their intellectual growth. It includes:

Literacy Classes: Basic reading and writing skills are taught to elderly individuals who may not have had the chance to receive formal education earlier in life.


KDCCE ensures that the elderly receive regular and nutritious meals, addressing food insecurity and malnutrition. The feeding program involves:

  • Weekly Meals: Elderly individuals are provided with balanced meals, considering their dietary requirements and preferences.


KDCCE recognizes the importance of maintaining a connection with elderly individuals who are unable to visit the center regularly. The home visit program involves:

• Regular Visits: Volunteers and staff members visit the homes of bedridden or immobile elderly individuals to provide companionship, emotional support, and essential services.

Exercise for the Elderly

Physical well-being is vital for maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle in old age. KDCCE also focuses muscle exercise sessions specifically tailored for the elderly. These sessions focus on gentle exercises and stretching routines that promote flexibility, strength, and mobility. Regular participation in these exercises helps improve overall fitness, balance, and reduces the risk of common age-related ailments.

Spiritual Program

KDCCE recognizes the importance of addressing the spiritual needs of the elderly individuals. Every Tuesday, a spiritual program is conducted, providing a platform for them to nurture their faith and find solace. The program may include religious services, prayers, meditation, or discussions on spiritual topics. It aims to promote a sense of inner peace, hope, and connectedness among the elderly participants.


KDCCE recognizes the benefits of sustainable agriculture for the elderly and the community. The farming program includes:

  • Community Garden: Elderly individuals are involved in cultivating vegetables, in shared garden, promoting self-sustainability and providing nutritious food options.
