Build Two Urgent Classrooms for 52 Kenyan Children

by Harvest Blessings Center, Inc.

Summary

Our academy in the village of Ngoliba is growing rapidly and the 52 students being taught by top educators will need two additional classrooms constructed before the new year in January 2015. This is to meet the Kenyan requirements and to prevent any interruptions in the education of these children.

Challenge

Overcrowded public schools and thousands of teachers going on strike or quitting has the nation of Kenya reeling with a serious dilemma. The average students per teacher in a class is about 50 and some up to 100 students in a single class with only one teacher. The quality of education is suffering and not having much of an effect on the cycle of poverty.

Solution

Harvest Blessings Center is dedicated to building smaller private schools that are affordable to the local people and still able offer a prestigious education. Our classrooms are able to hold 20 to 30 children allowing the teachers to focus on each child's needs and varying levels of learning.

Long-Term Impact

We are building a Primary school and Secondary school to educate up to 390 students per year once completed. By valuing quality over quantity, we may not be able to education as many children as the large public schools, but the ones who we can reach have a realistic chance of breaking the cycle of poverty. Through this project, many families can be transformed affecting future generations.
