Early Childhood Education

One glance into those deep eyes, awakens us to find the place we have been created for……. This is the mother of Genesis joy Project Institute. In the year 2000,in the Gitathuru area of the Mathare slums in the Kenyan capital Nairobi, about four (4) kilometres from the Thika high way, a baby class was established by Mr. Christopher Barassa the current Director, aided by his wife, Mrs. Beatrice Barassa.

The area was mainly characterised by young children of school going age who loitered around, and being exploited through child labour, responsibilities like fending for food for the family and ultimately this led many into the world of crime.

Mr. Barassa decided to volunteer his services to the orphans and vulnerable children in Mathare slum by converting his single room into a classroom and there after, Baby class was born. With the support of his wife who was still working elsewhere, feeding programme was introduced to maintain enrolment and concentration in class.
