Malawi’s ‘Rehabilitation Center for Children’
Malawi also has a ‘Rehabilitation Center for Children’ project proposal that is completed and submitted, which will work with the communities, government (social welfare dept.), church leaders and other stakeholders to improve the lives of street kids by getting children off the streets and reintegrating them with their families or providing them with accommodation which may become their home.
The project will have the following main areas of activities:

- Identification of street kids
- Provision of accommodation and education
- Family outreach to vulnerable groups
- Regular counseling to reduce the emotional stress of the parents and children
- Physical Activity & Motion Development Facility for Children with Disability

This project will construct 4 havens for children who will rescued from the streets. When these children have been successfully helped through change in their environment and therapy/counseling, there will be the need to provide full education. The type of education provided will depend on the age of the child and the level of understanding.

Any age above 22 years of age can receive career and technical training.
The ultimate aim of the Rehabilitation Center Project, is to provide the individual with opportunities for advancement with effective participation and inclusion in society including education and life skills.
Kenya similarly has an exploratory education restoration solution. In the first phase “Model School, One Campus, and One Community”, we are building a GEAC-sponsored private Montessori Model School with progressive levels from elementary, middle to high school, in partnership with the immediate communities made up of families and others who support the idea of integrating community and school. Both parents and children will receive free education and be taught life skills that will enable them to be self-sufficient. The project in addition to creating Exploratorium learning environments has a food forest farm that act as both a learning platform for permaculture and source of organic food to the community.
The incremental Phase two of the education restoration project focuses on Blended Learning in Satellite Campuses and Micro Schools. An appendage of GEAC-sponsored private Montessori Model School. We will setup the necessary infrastructure, acquire equipment, training of teachers, and assimilate blended learning models in satellite and micro-schools with a population of between 150 -300 learners with a radius of less or equal 10 kilometers to each other. This will also in-cooperate practical skills training of learners and the whole community members a precursor to a more robust vocational training center in future projects. We foresee the restoration of leaner based learning firmly embedded on creating a whole person in contrast to the current academic curriculum.
