Challenge

Learning should not be confined to the classroom. But the sad fact is, that for children in most government schools in Kenya, it is. With schools and parents unable to afford the costs of expensive field trips and tours, there are very few, if any, opportunities for interactive learning outside the classroom and most knowledge is acquired only from textbooks.

Solution

This two-day educational tour will provide the opportunity for 100 carefully selected pupils from across our seven partner schools to visit sites of historic and educational interest in the coastal city of Mombasa. This includes Fort Jesus, a UNESCO World Heritage site, Haller nature park, Moi International Airport, and, time permitting, even the beach!!

Long-Term Impact

For many, if not most, of these children this trip will be the first time they have visited and been exposed to other parts of the country. Other trips we have funded in the past to Mombasa, as well as to the Rift Valley, have been an eye-opening experience for those children that were involved (especially visits to the airport which have left many dreaming of becoming a pilot!).
