Poverty can cause children to miss out on an education
In Kenya, the State provides free education, but the children in the slums often cannot benefit from this. There are very few state schools in the slums, and the cost of a school uniform, school meals, and many other extras, create a barrier which is too high for the poorest people.
Helping children break the poverty cycle
Our mission is to provide a first-class education for the very deprived children in the Nairobi slums, covering all levels from primary school through college or university. Our aim is for these children to break the poverty cycle and become established and productive citizens.
We adopt a two-part approach
The first is to sponsor children in schools that provide a wonderful education and the pastoral care they need.
The second is to take on projects to create a better learning environment for our students and others in the community, e.g. building classrooms, setting up labs and libraries and providing computer equipment. We work closely with our own Kenyan staff and trusted Kenyan partners who help us get the best out of every investment to maximise the potential of each child.
Donors and sponsors make it possible
Needless to say, none of this would be possible without the generosity of our donors and sponsors. As we say in Kenya, asante sana! - thank you so much!
