There is a strong need for this project.
The Bliss Women and Children Project is located in Kaptembwo, Nakuru. Nakuru is famous for its national park, a place of stunning beauty. Climb to the top of Babboon Cliff and you can savour a jaw-dropping view that stretches as far as the eye can see. The city also offers nice hotels, complete with Olympic-sized swimming pools, excellent restaurants and a vibrant nightlife.
But then there’s Kaptembwo. Located less than 15 km from the center, the difference isn’t really something that can be measured in miles.
Instead, it’s the difference between those who have electricity, and those who don’t. Those who have running water, and those who have to drink, bathe, cook and wash with whatever they can find. Those who can eat in restaurants – and those who don’t know where their next meal will be coming from.Bliss Woman's Projects

2008, Kaptembwo became famous for a very different reason. During
Kenya’s 2008 post-election chaos, it was the site of some of the worst violence the country has ever seen. Armed gangs torched houses, and plundered property. People were terrorized, and thousands were displaced. Project photos
