Building back better rural Schools

Children have endured a hard time since Covid-19 interrupted learning. It meant that the work we have been doing for the longest time was hanging by a thread. Many girls did not return to school because of either early marriage or early pregnancy. Some children were subjected to work to help with the household income and, this saw some boys not returning to school as they now preferred working instead of going to school.

In our drive to get all the children back to school through the support of the Australian High Commission Kenya, we ensure girls stay in schools by providing them with sanitary towels. 600 girls benefited from this program. We provided 150 candidates with solar lamps to enable them to learn at home. We planted trees in 10 schools for environmental education.

Many girls miss school because of menstruation and, this leads to learning loss. Many rural children do not learn or do their homework in the evenings due to the lack of electricity. The provision of solar lamps has enabled many children to have at least an hour of learning at home and completing their homework. This has improved their school performance, and this was clear in the 2021 primary school national examination. Whereby, the top candidate, a girl in one of our beneficiary schools, had well above 400 marks out of 500. Mentorship is key, as it builds the self-esteem of the girls. We have had 10 sessions, and this has improved their self-esteem.

We planted 600 indigenous and fruit trees in 10 schools. The children were very excited and have been taking care of the trees as they are also taking the environmental education to their homes where they take care of the environment.

As we continue to build back better rural schools through a partnership with Grassroots Innovation for Change, we are introducing Enhancing Children’s Education in Kenyewa/Poka Location -Kajiado County through numeracy and literacy skills to ensure school improvement among learners. We are grateful for the support you continue to give us as we improve our community.

With Gratitude.
