Food program for slum children
Welcome to Glory Education Centre !
I environment of the project
Glory Education Centre is a tiny school in the Kiambiu slums of Nairobi. Today the school receives 98 pupils from 3 to 10 years old children coming from the surrounding slums. Our main objective is to provide them good and free education, as it is the first step to going out from rough poverty.
This school is entirely funded by the parents of the pupils and the support from the NGO Tumaini through our generous donors from GlobalGiving. The 3 teachers and all the resources (books, uniforms, pen, tables, board, etc) are paid by the fund raising we manage to get.
II Goals, activities and challenge of Tumaini for the school Glory center
- Food program
The children go home for lunch as the school is unable to provide them food but most of their family can`t afford a complete and healthy food for them. This is why Tumaini try to support the school and provide as much as possible food for lunch.
=> For now we are able to bring them twice a month food for the 98 pupils and teachers, we hope to be able to increase this rate very soon.
- Uniform program
Tumaini contribute to raise money to provide uniforms for all the pupils as much as possible as some are orphans while for others their families are barely able to afford proper clothes to them.
=> Currently we successfully managed to provide uniforms for the half of the children , still the other half has to wear their own clothes
- Health program
Tunaini invite every year professionals form government and partners, we organize with them vaccination campaign as the pupils family are not able to afford those services.
=> Until now we successfully managed to vaccinate all of our pupils
- School Stationery
Tumaini helps the school to provide for every pupils enough stationaries as books, notebook and pencil but also furniture as table , chairs, board etc.
III focus on the 3 past month
This few months we kept doing our different activities and supplying, for example our last intervention was on the 16th of March: the project leader Pastor David Karanja Kimama and 3 volunteers of Tumaini (Catherine, Antony and Alice) brought for every one chapatis (local bread) and beans. (SEE PHOTOS ATTACHED !)
The pupils were really happy to see Pastor David and his team, they received us with lot of joy, and we thank a lot all of our donors who allowed those smiles and full plates!!
IV Challenge and up coming events
We are looking how we can help the school to get its own structure as the current room is rented and is too small and not proper for such young children and don`t provide them hygienic environment.
This is why Tumaini relies on the help and generosity of all our members, volunteers and donors.
