Challenge

More than 50%of Kenyan population is composed by young people aged less than 18 years. There is a significant demand for schooling and education which the government, although many improvements have been done in the recent years , is only partially satisfying. The birth of private schools, especially in the urban underdeveloped areas has been a growing trend recently. The educational programs quality and health and safety conditions of those schools are often not up to standards.

Solution

VF offers the Kibera community with a valid alternative. VF provides quality education in a caring and contained environment. The small classes, trained and experienced teachers together with a wide range of extracurricular activities the students benefit from, makes VF Academy an important contributor to the development of the community. The new building will offer additional classrooms and spaces, state of the art laboratory and library, built to the most advanced health and safety standards

Long-Term Impact

VF was funded to identify and develop individual child talents to give them a chance to improve their own and their family living conditions. The high quality of the education, together with the tailored monitoring of each child emotional, physical and intellectual development will have a clear impact on the Kibera community future. Every activity carried out by VF involves also the children's parents so to widen the impact and immediately benefit the local community.
