Schooling 500 children left behind by AIDS



A team of 10 to 12 design professionals will design a master plan for the education of 500 and housing for 200 orphaned children on the 12.5 acre site of the existing St. Nicholas Orphanage.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The school's purpose is to provide education to AIDS orphans and other disadvantaged youth in Nairobi. Violence, famine and illness in the surrounding countries of Somalia, Ethiopia, Uganda and the Sudan have driven many refugees into Kenya where they populate the slums. In addition to providing Christian-based education, the outreach will also afford the student one good meal a day.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our volunteers will provide a technical master plan report including phasing construction drawings and fundraising materials for the Good Samaritan School. This is foundational for organizations to see their dreams and visions become realities.

Potential Long Term Impact

The school's desire is that the outreach to the youth and strong education will prepare thousands of children, many orphaned by AIDS, for the difficulties they will face as adults and will bring hope into many families.
