Tumaini School funded by Giraffe supporters
Green Pastures is a primary school on the edge of Nairobi's largest slum.
Excellent results have made this a standout academy, attracting accolades, and interest from parents outside the slums as well as within.
Giraffe provide a new set of classrooms, water storage facilities, and a computer lab and library for the school, and we now have around 140 children sponsored here.
Tumaini means hope and that's exactly what this school offers to many children in Mathare - a notorious slum to the east of central Nairobi.
Giraffe sponsors helped to build a beautiful new school here, with light airy classrooms, a library and a computer lab. See the carousel above.
As a result of a better environment and dedicated teachers, the school is performing extremely well. Tumaini is the first school we worked with, and today we have around 80 students here.
