Summary

Over 1 year, 180 volunteer supervisors will participate in an initial 3-day course facilitated by experts, comprising of 16 workshops focusing on life skills, rights & knowledge and relationships & wellbeing. Over the year they will embark on independent learning activities, group tasks, complete a reflective journal and will cascade their knowledge and learning to other supervisors and SoH committee members. A follow up 2-day workshop will reflect on learning gains and share skills.

Challenge

The impact of poverty on education in East Africa remains one of the biggest challenges. For many young people they cannot attend school due to work or family commitments or have no place to study at home; for many the SoH is their only option. Our volunteer supervisors are enthusiastic young people, most of whom were once students that attended SoH; are waiting to take up places at University or to find permanent jobs. They are not trained teachers or youth workers but have the capacity to be.

Solution

We've 43 SoH (after school study clubs) in Kenyan and Tanzanian slum settlements with over 2500 students attending. By training VS do their job more effectively we will ensure aspirational students are successful, mentored and able to succeed in life. The learning and social needs of our students in a modernising East Africa are changing and by equipping the volunteer supervisors to understand issues that face today's young people we can keep them in education and maximise their potential.

Long-Term Impact

Education has the potential to lift a child out of poverty, by helping children to attend and participate in a SoH, they are in a much better position to take advantage of opportunities and find employment in the future. We want to ensure the volunteer supervisors that work in SoH are fully equipped to provide the highest level of mentoring & counselling, to understand mental health issues, children's rights, health and hygiene, gender issues and to be effective leaders & inspirational teachers.
