Summary

Our primary school in the slums outside Mombasa has around 15,000 residence and around 4,000 children that need education but are unable to access it. Our school currently has 311 primary school children that we are teaching with the aim one day they will be able to access employment and break the poverty cycle the community currently face. Education is key but it is also very expensive and therefore this project is to build a sustainable income to fund the school.

Challenge

This microproject aim is to fundraise $4,800 to purchase 4 more Honda motorcycles that will be rented to the community to bring in an income that will fund our school running costs. We want to be sustainable and this is a really good model. It costs $1,200 to buy a new Honda bike and this will bring in around $200 a month profit that will be 100% invested back into our primary school. This really is a gift that creates long term sustainability for our school!

Solution

The only mode on transport in the slums is motorbikes and the rental business is a great opportunity for our school to raise an income that can then be donated back into the school running costs. Currently the school has 2 bikes and 2 TukTuks and this brings in enough funds to cover 30% of the current school salaries bill. Purchasing 4 more bikes will allow us to increase the income to cover most of the staff at the school.

Long-Term Impact

Providing a model where the school can fund itself is key to the long term sustainable plan for our project. A gift to this project will allow for the school to stop relying upon on donations to provide an education to the community. We hope that we will be able to grow these projects to increase capacity of our school so in the future all 4,000 children will access some form of education.
