Donations help Children earn qualifications

With thanks to generous donations to the GVI Charitable Trust children at the Olives Rehabilitation Centre in Mombassa, Kenya will be able to earn the KCPE (Kenyan Certificate in Primary Education) for the first time.

Staff and community members are hard at work building new classrooms which will house children as they progress through to Standard 8 to earn their KCPE. Donations have also helped build a temporary kitchen to keep the children well fed, providing a balanced diet and helping the children concentrate in school.

The KCPE is necessarily for even the lowest skilled jobs in Kenya, now children at Olives will no longer have this barrier working against them.
