Play is one of the most important building blocks for child development and through Nancy’s Playgrounds we provide safe spaces for children to develop their creativity, dexterity, motor skills, cognitive and emotional strength. It’s no wonder that Nancy always said, “Children must play!” With your help we can ensure that all children regardless of circumstance have access to safe child friendly amenities.
Nearly four hundred children under the age of four are living in prison in an effort to not separate them from their imprisoned mothers. In 2019 we started the ‘Playgrounds in Prisons’ initiative with the goal of bringing playgrounds to all of Kenya's women's prisons, giving the children the chance to learn, to experience joy and play.
The children are considerate on the playground. Tom has come out of his shell and you can even recognize leadership traits developing in the children...
NECF really made a difference in the holistic development of the children. It’s a step closer to a more normal life for them here
One thing is for sure, Nancy loved Kenya. In 1986, Nancy Ellen co-authored a booklet, entitled ‘Kenya Trivia’, about Kenya’s ecology, geography and culture. Forty-two thousand copies were published and sold. This publication was a key text used by individuals training to be guides in the national museum, as well as safari guides.
