HAWKERS MARKET GIRLS CENTRE
Lift her up, so she can rise and ramble
Hawkers Market Girls Centre (HMGC)
Hawkers Market Girls Centre (HMGC) is a community based organization that works in partnership with other organizations to enable girls and young women to develop their fullest potential by providing them with both vocational and life skills.
The girls who come to the center are from the slums surrounding the city of Nairobi. In the slums there is no fresh water, no space and no sanitation. HMGC is there home away from home. HMGC provides safe water, free food and free education. HMGC has dedicated mentors who love, care and support the girls.
he girls who have passed through this center have responsible jobs, are educating their siblings have moved to better living conditions and some have come back to mentor other girls in turn.
The Hawkers Market Girls Centre is a Community Based Organization that was started 1996 to help women earn a living from composting. At the same time we offered education and vocational training to girls aged 16-22 years who are unable to access formal education.
To date HMGC has relied on well wishers to enable girls to receive free food and free education.
