ABUNDANCE SCHOOL IN SLUMS OF NAIROBI KENYA

by TIBA AFRICA FOUNDATION
Vetted

Summary

We have 80 children at 5 different learning levels, all learning together in a 300 sq feet structure made of iron sheets 'a tin shack that leaks'. We need more classrooms to match the demand, have children learn in separate rooms rather than in the one partitioned small room they use today. We need to build separate latrine toilets for the school, instead of the current situation where the children are obliged to use the community latrines that are of very poor hygiene quality.

Challenge

For the past eight years of service in and for the community, we have continuously had an increasing demand for admission of children to our Abundance School.We have been forced to admit many more children than the manageable capacity. We have 80 children at 5 different learning levels, all learning together in a 300 sq feet structure made of iron sheets 'a tin shack that leaks'. We need more classrooms to match the demand, have children learn in separate rooms rather than in the one part

Solution

We need to build separate latrine toilets for the school, instead of the current situation where the children are obliged to use the community latrines that are of very poor hygiene quality. We need to have a safe playground that doesn't flood. We also would like a school farm where the children can learn and practice organic farming. Children born and growing up in the Nairobi slums need a way of connecting with food production and nature for their future wellbeing.

Long-Term Impact

Children leaving Abundance School will have received a good-quality education and opportunities to develop emotionally and holistically, enabling them to realize their full potential in any field they choose. This education is the key to lifting them, their families and their community out of the vicious cycle of poverty.
