In the area we work, there is desperateness for a good education. Although primary education in Kenya is compulsory, it is not free. Even state schools have many extra charges that are beyond the very less fortunate. This results in many children never attending school. That’s why we have built this school in slums of langas area Eldoret Kenya:
- Provide an education to children who would not otherwise go to school.
- Provide an excellent Primary education as a stepping stone to Secondary and Tertiary education in the hope that many qualified professionals will return to help their area.
The primary goal of this project is to restore hope and provision of formal education and needs to orphans and other vulnerable children in Kenya.
We do believe that when we help the children acquire education we would have empower them to get knowledge and skills for self-development .furthermore we engage in income generating activities to be able to sustain the institution and also to empower members of the local society with entrepreneur skills to help them attain self -reliance within the slum.
The project has a well-balance diet for the children where we ensure that the children get a well-balanced diet; two meals a day since it’s a day school. Furthermore the school has got a program that provides school uniforms to students in addition to these the school recognize that some of the children are traumatized and maybe in need of psychology counseling. The school has endeavored to offer psychosocial support by seeking the service of professional counselors from time to time. Finally the school has about 300 chickens that produce eggs which are sold locally and this the school already strained budget.
To restore hope and provision of formal education and needs to orphans and other vulnerable children in Kenya.
