Challenge

Juja Farm Village is a semi-arid area coupled with persistent drought and a high rate of HIV/ Aids. High levels of HIV/Aids has left children of single parents destitute with high levels of illiteracy and no capacity to offer an education opportunity to their children. Currently, there is a prevailing vicious poverty cycle, due to discrimination through HIV/Aids, leading to early marriage and teenage pregnancy. This project will provide opportunity for education, breaking the cycle of poverty.

Solution

New beginning Academy is a 3 class roomed primary school in Juja Farm Village aimed to provide basic primary education, vocational training and counselling to children and youth age 4-17yrs. The school is too small to handle the needs of this group and hence need additional classroom to meet their requirements. The school provides education in an environment without prejudice and offer counselling to the affected and provide day meals to children who otherwise go without any meals at all.

Long-Term Impact

The project will give 200 poor and orphaned children education opportunities. These children are subject to stigmatization related to their circumstances and not flourishing under the statutory education system. Additional classrooms will enable the children to progress with education system smoothly to the next academic year. The classrooms will also be used to facilitate vocational training for the youth who have dropped out of school due to early pregnancy and poverty.
