Summary

Nairobi's informal schools face formidable challenges with lack of teaching staff and learning materials. We are working with 4 informal schools in Ruaraka, Nairobi which suffer from a severe shortage of teachers (with a teacher to student ratio of 1:60) and also a shortage of reading materials. With your donation, our team of 5 volunteers are teaching and carrying out targeted mentorship for the children in these 4 schools. Kindly support this program to grow and reach out 12 more schools.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The root of the problem is large number of students in these schools with few teaching staff, which leads to poor quality education. This has partly been an unintended consequence of Kenya's success in increasing primary school enrollment. Again, these schools are ill equipped with learning materials.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our team of volunteers with your support will provide additional support to over-stretched teaching staff. This will include providing teaching assistance, distributing reading materials, individually supporting the children in most need through mentorship, and organizing extra-curricular activities such as sports clubs, edutainment.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will be a success if more local children finish school with a high level of literacy and core skills to succeed in life. The project has been positioned for phased implementation. In the first phase, the project will reach out to 250 children in 12 partner schools. Other more phases to follow. We will use school performance in national exams to track the impact of our work and simultaneously monitor the progress of individual children we provide intensive support to.
