Tumshangilieni - Friends of Shangilia, Lund Sweden

Tumshangilieni mtoto!
Let's rejoice for the child

The orphanage was founded in 1994 by actress Anne Wanjugu who participated with the children in a film about street children called "Cry Child of Africa!"

Anne decided to create a home, theater and school where it would be possible for the children to strengthen their talents. The first home was located on a dark and narrow courtyard in the Kangemi slum. But in 2014 they were able to move to a newly built home with lots of outdoor space where they could grow vegetables, have animals and where the children could play and breathe fresh air. Shangilia is now responsible for 250 orphans as well as 66 day-school pupils from the neighboring village. In addition to academic studies the children may study song, dance, music, drama, acrobatics and taekwondo.
