Challenge

Abundance school strives to provide an affordable quality education for our young learners, primary students aged 5 to 10, from the Kabiria slum area of Nairobi. We try hard to provide our pupils with all their school needs, but even so many families struggle at the start of the school year to purchase the bare minimum of necessary school supplies.

Solution

We initiated the 'Soma Soma' ('Read Read') Back-Pack Gift-Pack Project to lessen the burden of quality education on the families of our young learners. Our kids can celebrate the holidays with a gift from our sponsors AND start the new school year with a full set of school supplies AND a durable canvas school bag which will serve them well for years.

Long-Term Impact

Your support will assist our pupils to develop an enthusiasm for learning. The canvas school bags will serve our pupils well for years, protecting their school books and supplies, while encouraging them to walk with dignity and pride among fellow students. Local sourcing of our school bags also helps build the flourishing canvas stitching industry of Kenya, providing jobs and salaries for skilled craftsmen.
