Tumshangilieni mtoto! Let's rejoice for the child!

Tumshangilieni, previous known as Shangilia, is a children's home-school-theater for 240 children in Kangemi, a slum in Nairobi.

In addition to academic studies the children have the opportunity to learn singing, dancing, music, drama, acrobatics and tae-kwondo. There is also a choir and a brass band. The home was founded in 1994 by the actress Anne Wanjugu and since then the Shangilia children have become the voice of the street-children.

Friends of Shangilia, (FoS), Sweden
The organization was started by Anne Carlsvi who learned of the home while visiting a friend in Kenya. The group is a network of friends and neighbors.

We will continue to use the previous name Shangilia in our organization, because it is so well known amongst our benefactors.
