Evangelical Victory Church has over 400 children attending Sunday School and learning about Jesus through Chronological Bible Storying
EVC also has a ministry to widows and orphans. They have fed those who were hungry, taught sewing classes so that ladies could start their own business and they conduct a school which provides a inexpensive, quality education to the children of Huruma.
Huruma Slum is only one of the 70 slums that surround Nairobi.
Over half of the people who live in the slums of Nairobi
live on less than $35 per month.
The people of Huruma struggle to survive. Some sell goats for a living. Others own small shops that sell daily necessities. Some provide services like sewing, shoe mending and bicycle repair.
A typical “shop” in Huruma will be about 6 feet by 6 feet. The customer does not come in, but stands at a window to say what he needs.
The residents of Huruma can also get services like hairstyling. You might find it strange that people with so little money would be able to pay for these services. Not everyone can afford it, and those who can pay a very small sum.
For a lady to get attachments put in her hair, it might take her 4 to 8 hours to have the work done and she will pay from $1 to $3 for the work.
