Summary

Mustard Seed is providing quality education for 275 poor children in a deprived area of Mombasa. The ground floor of our purpose built school is finished but we need to complete the upper floor with more classrooms and a hall. The six classrooms on the ground flour are in use but the rest of the children are in a rented building. We will save 5,000 a year in rent when the upper storey is complete. We also have a school nurse providing preventative care to our children and the local community.

Challenge

Children aged 6 -14 can attend the government school in a class of 100 or more but all resources and uniform must be paid for by the parents. There is no free education for children under 6. Those who can afford a little for their children to be educated, pay unqualified teachers who are working without resources in difficult conditions. Many children do not attend school and are malnourished.

Solution

Mustard Seed Project provides poor children with quality education from committed, qualified teachers with good resources in classes of 25 to 30. There is a feeding programme of both early morning porridge and a balanced lunch-time meal. We now have 300 children in the purpose built school completed in January 2021. We no longer have to pay for rented buildings and this helps to ensure sustainability for the future.

Long-Term Impact

Our school will provide the poor with high quality education which will enable them to get good grades in their KCPE and go to secondary school. The healthy diet and the healthcare they receive enables them to take full advantage of this education. Our completed school will additionally provide a hall and library for use by the whole community out of school hours. This school will change the lives of our children, their family's life and the lives of others in the community.
