The Girls Centre of Excellence, located in North East Kenya, is the home for young Kenyan orphan girls and other girls from the region in need of accommodation. This large and ambitious project was instigated by Dr Mohamud Sheikh and is being managed by WARDA (the Waso Relief & Development Agency), one of our partners on the ground in Kenya. It has been funded through HARDA by the very generous donations of Global Aid Foundation and a group of philanthropic Muslims. The building of the complex, which includes dormitories, a hall, washrooms, storage, etc. has been completed and the benefits are flowing to the young orphan girls in the community.
The 250 girls living in the Center who have lost one or both parents now have opportunity to fit in with the local school to receive formal education. The supporters have also undertaken to meet the recurrent costs of the Centre.
