Your Donation has helped us raise 20,327 out of $96,982 goal.
Year 2021 was very hard for the project because of hard economic times due to covid-19. We thank you for your constant donations and we appeal to you despite the hard economic times you walk with us until we realize our dream of raising the remaining amount in 2022.
We have bought 6 containers 300 text books and 100 lockable tables for the school. In January to December 2021 and 20 additional tables and chairs for children to provide social distancing among children due to Covid-19 pandemic. We are progressing well and we are getting new donations. We are on track. We need to raise more money to buy the remaining 4 containers in quarter 4 and quarter 1 of January 2022 and keep our feeding program going. From January 2021 we are providing breakfast and lunch for all children in school and we will continue to 2022.
Buying 1 container and converting it to classroom it cost USD3326
Due to COVID-19 the ministry of education has given details for social distance among pupils of 1.5 Metres apart per pupil in class rooms to avoid congestion so we are in great urgency to raise the remaining 4 containers. In total we need 10 containers. One container is being used as a classroom and the second one as library the remaining 4 containers will be brought on the site once we finish working on the space on the ground.
We are building a high standard modern Container primary school suitable for an informal settlement (slum) in Githogoro, Nairobi, Kenya - to provide high quality education for needy families living below $365 per year. Our aim is to give free access to education for children who otherwise have no education, so they can break out of the vicious cycle of extreme poverty. Since 2005 we have given access to education for over 1,000 children from the slums and we want to increase the number to 3,000 Children by 2030. Helping share with friends is also a great contribution.
