Education against poverty and unemployment
In Kenya as in many African countries, poverty is mainly affecting children. Economic problems such as unemployment, lack of education as well as lack of social support generate for extreme poverty. For children who are growing under these circumstances, everyday life means nothing but the daily struggle for survival.
Our goal is to prepare the children for an independance life and to accompany them until they can stand on their own. We want to ensure that each child is given a school education and a vocational training according to their individual needs. This is particularly necessary for the most vulnerable in a society marked by bitter poverty, disease, low education and unemployment.
Over 850 children in Nelaa Primary School have to share 8 classrooms and a kindergarten. From the 1st to the 8th grade there are more than 65 students in a classroom. Several children share a school bench. Only 12 Teachers are available. These are underpaid and feel overwhelmed by the situation.
- There are no Toilets and a kitchen to prepare school meals.
- They are lacking furniture and teaching aids.
- The children have almost nothing to wear.
Good education is the key to poverty eradication and a prerequisite for a healthy future!
What does it cost?
- For example a kindergarten building costs 45.000 Euros
- The catering for 850 children costs 500 Euros monthly.
- A first aid room and toilet facility for school costs 20.000 Euros.
Through our educational projects, children will be given the opportunity to go to school, to learn a profession or a craft. In this way we enable girls and boys to live a self-determined life as adults. It is therefore imperative that all children have access to education in order to promote the development of society as a whole. The quality of education needs to be improved and priority set on final grades in primary and secondary schools.
