UNIFORMS FOR KIBERA GIRLS

Some of the girls who received new uniforms.

Primary education in Kenya is free, students are however required to buy their text books and even school uniforms to be able to attend school. Many parents cannot afford these causing the children to stay away from school and in most cases go to school in very old unforms. Polycom development project listens to girls inner voices, on issues affecting their education.

Through your support, Polycom managed to buy new school uniforms to 30 girls from 15 partner schools. These girls were identified through inpromptu visit to their schools where they were found in rugs. The girls received their uniforms in Polycom Development Project offices in Kibera Nairobi. The girls shared about how inspired they are to now concentrate on their education without worries and pass their exams. Polycom will continue working on nurturing girls to pursue their education and rise beyond poverty.

Through our slogan G-PENDE Polycom promotes self appeciation and worthiness, this can only be achieved if girls are confidence, walking around in rugs make one feel less and is always humilated, we are very proud to have had this initiative successfully. Our dream is to make uniforms for 500 needy girls of Kibera, we are targeting big girls who are already concious of their poverty status and can easily be manipulated into children prostitution in exchange of these necesities for their education.
