The Nest is a Project for the Rescue, Rehabilitation and Integration of Children in Conflict with the Law & Children of Imprisoned Mothers. The Children’s Home located in Limuru, 20 km northwest of Nairobi give holistic  care and formal education to the children for time their mothers are imprisoned.

To date, the Nest cares for approx. 100 children—ranging from newborn to 17-year-olds. In order to maintain the bond between the children and their imprisoned mothers, the Nest ensures the children regularly visit their mothers in prison. They also care for a number of abandoned babies for whom they try to find loving families.

We worked with the Nest to implement a 15KW solar system that has drastically  helped to cut down on power costs. Much to the joy of the children, the center always has electricity even in times of power outages

The solar system implemented here for maximum impact included:

  • 220WP solar world modules
  • 3 pieces Sunny Mini Central 5000
  • 3pcs Sunny Island 5048
  • Sunny island 2012
  • 24pcs 12V 200Ah Gaston batteries
