Educate slum child in Kenya.
 
Non formal schools in the slums of Nairobi face formidable challenges with lack of teaching staff and learning materials. We are working with 8 non-formal schools in Ruaraka, Nairobi which suffer from a severe shortage of teachers (with a teacher to student ratio of 1:40) and also a shortage of reading materials. With your donation, our team of 15 volunteers are teaching and carrying out targeted mentorship for the children in these schools. project reportread updates from the field
