Glory Education Centre is a tiny school in the slums of Nairobi. Today the school receives 98 pupils from 3 to 10 years old children coming from the surrounding slums. Our primary objective is to provide them with good quality and free education, as it is the first step to going out from rough poverty they are struggling with.
This school is entirely funded by the parents of the pupils and the support from our NGO Tumaini through the generous donors from GlobalGiving. The fundraising pays the three teachers and all the resources (books, uniforms, pen, tables, board and so forth) we managed to get in past two years.
The children were able to resume to school after a long holiday and got excited to study in their new school. They are now in a good environment and they are hoping for the best in their studies and their future lives.
Our visit this year to the school we prepared a healthy lunch for the pupils and shared the meal together. Each child had a plate of rice, beans and cabbages. They loved it so much and we shall continue supporting them with the food program.
CHALLENGE AND UPCOMING EVENTS
Since the relocation of the new school most of the pupils skip classes this is because their parents lack school fess and by this the children are few in the classes. We are looking forward to know how we shall resolve that so that they can be able to study once again.
Parkview Achievers has 250 children ranging in age from 2 years and above. Most of them are either orphans or of single parents and guardians. Their parents eke out a living by hawking and doing small scale business which cannot provide basic needs for the children. By our help we want to make a big change to the pupils at that school so that they have a bright future ahead of them.
We find it so difficult to handle the whole children and came up with an idea of first helping the small children who are 20 in number.As the project grows we can continue supporting the rest of the children.During our first visit we came up with an idea of having a tea break with them which we gave them a packet of milk for each child.By this we had a great time with them.
Thank you for the support we are receiving from you.
We also have different group in the organization which provide basic need to the children which is lunch. We have made great impact not by ourselves but through your support.
By puting our hands together we can change the pupils. Please help us change the living of our children through your donation

To all our Supporters,
Thank you for your support in empowering small businesses. Our microloans are really helping vulnerable women to start or run their small businesses. Meet Mary one of the small business owners in Nairobi, she recently received a loan to boost her Kiosk.
This is what she had to say,
Hello, my name is Mary, I am very grateful for the loans that I received and I want to say thank you. I used my loan to stock my small Kiosk and since then I have been able to meet the basic needs of my family and pay school fees for my children. I manage to sustain my family in everything that they require and also to stock my kiosk since I have a lot of customers.
I say to all donors, thank you!
