Review for MADE IN THE STREETS, Brentwood, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Made in the Streets is a veteran organization with a boarding school that has graduated hundreds of Kenyan teens formerly experiencing homelessness (some for many years) who elected to come off the streets, join MITS, and change their lives. The program starts with residential academic rigor with excellent Kenyan teachers and ends with skills training to be employable in the booming Kenyan economy. Alongside the approximately 100 teens in the residential program in any given year in the suburbs, MITS' Eastleigh location serves the slum's street teen population in many ways and is a respected member of the community. MITS is having its 25th anniversary in 2020--it was started in 1995 by an American couple and Kenyan teens with hearts for ministry to this undervalued demographic. This is a photo of my daughter who is currently serving a three-month internship with MITS.
