The Nest Home is a project in southern Kenya with three locations in Nairobi and Limuru. Its objective is to take care of children whose parents have died or are in prison. The association sets up support and social and economic reintegration processes (reception, education, medical care, schooling, etc.). About a hundred children and about thirty infants, whose traumatic load must be reduced, are taken in charge by the association. Not financed by the African state, the association, which is internationally recognized, lives on funds mainly from abroad. The association wanted to become energy independent, reduce its energy costs and, in addition, store and treat rainwater.
