BANNAKAROLI BROTHERS OF ST. CHARLES LWANGA
Brother Charles oversees a primary school and vocational education program run by the Brothers of Charles Lwanga on the edge of the Kibera slum, the largest slum in Africa. The primary school currently enrolls 280 students and 260 young people, including teenage mothers who are enrolled in vocational programs.
The vocational programs are an effective strategy in alleviating poverty and include programs in motor vehicle maintenance, hairdressing and beauty, hospitality, computer technology and more. The Bannakaroli brothers see themselves as defenders of human rights and as a voice for the vulnerable.
