CHADIK is also striving to support children in the Likii slum in Nanyuki, a town approximately 3 hours north of Nairobi, work previously funded by a number of generous individuals. Our role here included supporting a nursery school (now privatised) and important IT training at the LISHACQ Self Help Centre. Progress in LISHACQ has been steady, a dispensary is being supported and a state of the art IT centre installed. A small laboratory has been furnished and equipped to allow a range of diagnostic tests to be carried out locally.
