PEHUCCI aims to give kids and youth in Ruai area access to education so that they can be equipped with skills and ideas that can be used to better their lives hence making them better citizens of the society.

The Project

Peace Humanitarian Christian Centre International is a community initiative project that started in 1993 to empower orphaned and destitute children around Ruai location. The project aims to secure a brighter future for children through nutrition, education support and spiritual awareness. Apart from offering educational opportunities to the children, the center also aims at dealing with the vice of drug addiction and crime among the children and youth staying in the area.

Currently the centre has about 580 students from nursery to high school level who are aged between 3 to 18 years. The centre has 9 teachers and 2 non teaching staff. The centre has an orphanage where orphans and vulnerable children live. It also has a kiosk, which helps in sustaining the needs of the Orphans and vulnerable children.

The Centre also offers guiding and counseling sessions.
