Equiping the next generation
By Nicholas Wanyama - CEO/Founder
Despite of the covid 19 challenges. we as raise education center we thank God for everything and our donors as well. Through our feeding program we are able to sustain a good number of children in school and increase enrollment in each and every academic term. Children are able to concentrate in lessons and partake their exams with ease and comfort. This is unlike before when our children lacked basic meals in school and the school had a huge challenge of concentration and retainance. Currently we have a total of 370 pupils both boys and girls.*Fredrick juma not his really name' I have joined this school this term because my neighbor Bakari give me alot of praise that in raise education centre they are given porridge and snacks during break time. At lunch time they are given food for free and good menu that is the reason I told my mother to enroll me in this center .In my former school we were not given food neither porridge I thank the donors and GlobalGiving for supporting me and fellow pupils in this slum areas whereby when we are at home we only take one meal per day".
Through our partnership with UNICEF,we were happy to receive school bags for most of our pupils and text books which will go a long way in adding value to our academic interventions.Our students are actively engaged in football as one of the most popular sports across the world. They have regular trainings as they prepare for local and inter school leagues /tournaments.
The school continues to adhere to covid 19 protocols and is set to close on 26/7/2021 for pupils to take an academic break. We would like to thank GG and our donors for choosing to support our children in achieving their dreams and appeal for more support to sustain the feeding program,purchasing additional education supplies and extra curriculum activities equipment. God bless GG and our able donors!
