Madharau slums are a part of town that not many are familiar with. They are located on the outskirts of Thika. Many of the inhabitants are single moms and children. These single mums are often between the ages of 14 and 25, coming from single homes themselves. It’s a sad cycle that may go on for generations without intervention.

” I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create a ripple.”

– Mother Teresa

The initiative is the brain child of Susan Gitau Counseling Foundation in partnership with Gifted Hands Initiative Programs. The initiative seeks to help single mothers between the ages of 14 and 25 who have mostly  gone through
