Summary

We have been working with a local Primary School in Mombassa since 2010. The school has grown from its humble beginnings as a care centre to a fully-fledged school. As the centre grew and developed, this project has helped to cater to its diverse and ever-changing needs. With 14.5 million individuals facing a food crisis, this project is a start to alleviating their struggles. Funds are used primarily to fund a feeding programme and to cover the school running costs.

Challenge

Our school is located in a particularly deprived area of Mombasa. Many children can't access education due to lack of facilities, resources and funds for teachers. This means that families and communities struggle to break the cycle of poverty. Inconsistency or lack of teaching staff due to funding is common and a huge barrier to children's education. Health issues, in particular, hunger and its related ailments, keeps children away as food is prioritised over education.

Solution

Donations made to this project are used to subsidise teachers' wages and the Feeding Programme, which has been running since 2010. By ensuring that teachers can get paid, we are able to provide consistency for the staff and children, helping to keep them in school and maximise their learning capacity. The feeding programme feeds around 250 children two nutritious meals a day, improving their health and concentration levels. We are also fundraising to build a new school with a veggie garden.

Long-Term Impact

Consistent wages mean that the teachers can focus on delivering lessons and provides essential continuity for the children. The feeding programme improves the health and wellbeing of children. Access, to what may be the only meals they receive in a day, incentivizes families to send their children to school. Children who are fed nutritious meals at school will be more able to engage with school activities and have greater prospects of reaching their full potential.
