Providing Education To The Vulnerable And Orphans

Education for the disadvantaged and orphans in Kibera has luke warm.They are left alone with out any help from people around them.Some as young as 10years are forced to go out to look for employment so that they can have something to eat and education to them is a preserve for the well to do families. But MAGOSO CENTRE(mashimoni good samaritan school for the orphans)was established by a few individuals and well wishers to help alleviate this problem.These pupils are given chance to study free of charge upto class eight and ever further and those who are in serious needs are accomodated in school and food provided to them.The school has volunteer teachers who are trained and discharge their duties with passion.Some people should copy this.
