About Us

Ken Toledo Social Service Club (KTSSC) was established and registered on 5th November 2004 as a community/faith based organization in the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Development at Nyayo House, Nairobi – Kenya.
The organization’s offices are located at St. Vincent De Paul Ozanam House along Sebatayet road, off Eastleigh Second Avenue in Nairobi, Kenya.

Mathare17The organization has initiated various projects since its inception.

Its initial project which is running up-to-date is the education support program. It has supported over 250 children and 50 youth, some of whom are still in the program. Currently, it is supporting 75 pupils in primary school, 60 in secondary school, 15 in vocational training institutes and 6 in the public university.

The beneficiaries of the education support program (ESP) include street children, orphans, poor and vulnerable children from single parent families, and the rest from very needy families.
Some of their parents are HIV positive and 30 of them are currently very sick. The families of these children live in very small shacks which are made of mud, old tins and cartons. The environment where these children live is horrible and lacks basic social amenities and utilities.

IMG_2357KTSSC also provides basic guidance and counseling to the beneficiaries and their parents. Every situation is evaluated and a favorable action is taken based on information received during home and school visits, counseling sessions and regular meetings.
This is geared to self acceptance, uplifting self- esteem, motivation, and capacity to deal with varied situations.

Relocation     KTSSC felt the need to relocate some families from the slum to rural areas. Last year, three families were relocated from the slums to Western Kenya.
This is a better option for the families that have parcels of land in the rural areas. Other families are interested in relocation but KTSSC lacks material support to assist them in settling in their new homes.

IMG_2390KTSSC endeavors to alleviate poverty and promote integral human development. Therefore, the organization is increasing its volume of activities in order to support more needy, vulnerable and marginalized people in regaining their dignity.
