Challenge

Mathare is the second largest slum in Kenya with most household income less than a dollar per day. This has got a direct negative impact on affordability of quality education for the youths from these families. The need for education for the growing youths population is clearly indicated by the large number of youths who graduate from primary school. Majority do not proceed to secondary school because of poverty level, while others come from dysfunctional families.

Solution

The project aims at setting up a resource centre to enable youths access quality and affordable education, skill development and empower them with relevant know-how so that they can favorably compete with their peers from high cost schools that are well equipped. Upon completion of this project more youths will be enrolled into the program for secondary education and vocational training to enable them access opportunities and assure them a better future.

Long-Term Impact

The project is expected to benefit 500 youths in school and 100 youths who are out of school and in need of vocational training. the impact of the project will be improved living standard, better future and ability to access opportunities in their livelihoods. Averagely each household in Mathare consists of 5 members therefore the direct beneficiaries will be about 3000 people annually. this project will therefore create a generation of youths who have the skills to access opportunities.
