In the spirit of giving back to the society, Cytonn Investments Management Plc visited Christ Chapel Children’s Home in Huruma, on Saturday, 27th January 2018. Christ Chapel Children's Home (CCCH) is a non-profit making organization initiated in 2002, which was officially registered with the ministry of Gender Sports, Culture and Social Services in 2004. The Home aims to offer an institution for holistic child development and is based in Huruma slums on the outskirts of Nairobi.

Speaking during the event, Gloria Ndunge, Executive Director, Christ Chapel Children’s Home noted that, “The initiation and establishment of Christ Chapel Children's Home came as a result of the realization that as much as people were receiving the gospel from the preaching I made, the community needed material support. Abject poverty among the slum dwellers of Huruma has resulted in commercial sex girl-child prostitution and labour, teenage pregnancy and single motherhood. HIV/AIDS has also claimed the lives of the majority of young parents living behind a high number of orphans and vulnerable children, some of whom have ended up in the streets. Due to the above and many other unmentioned factors, Christ Chapel Children's Home was born.” She went on to thank Cytonn for collaborating to see the betterment of the Orphans and Vulnerable Children and affirmed that, “Christ Chapel Children's Home wants to see a well-nurtured orphan and vulnerable child living an adequate physical, mental, moral, social and spiritual life.”

Anne Joseph, Senior Human Resource Associate at Cytonn Investments noted that “Cytonn is keen on giving back to the society through promoting the lives of Orphans and Vulnerable children.”

In the afternoon, the two teams engaged in team building activities that included playing games and engaging in group discussions. The Cytonn team later donated foodstuffs and books to the children.

Cytonn Investments is keen on being part of the society it serves, especially the underprivileged members of the society. The next visit is scheduled for 10th February at Kahawa West Children’s Home.
