The slums of Nairobi are an incredibly hard place live.  Nutrition, sanitation, a safe place to sleep and quality education are difficult to access.  When daily life is a struggle there is little room for the children to hope or aspire for a better future.

Following a visit to her extended family in Kenya and seeing the work done in Deep Sea slum by a medical charity called Rainbow 4 Africa UK , Ruhi Morbiwalla was motivated to create a way to support the children that would enable real transformation for the children of the slums. 

We combine learning interventions with mentoring for a group of children selected by the community to provide transformational support.

Everything we do is rooted in the belief that all children, regardless of circumstance, should be able to dream big and lead a life of choice and opportunity.


We are a small group of volunteers based in Kenya and England, united by our commitment to making a difference to the children we support.


The word FURSA means opportunity in Kiswahili. Kiswahili is the lingua franca in East Africa.

FURSA is a perfect fit for us since our work is about increasing life opportunities for the children we serve.
