partners with Shelter the Students to fund the construction of dormitories for homeless orphans
Wasting water: During the rainy season, huge amounts of water run off the roof, creating erosion and mud puddles around the school building. When the dry season comes the wells dry up and there is a scarcity of usable water. $3000 was donated for this project.
Hostel for homeless high school students: These students have nowhere to go on holidays and breaks. We need housing for them. A memorial gift of $3000 was donated for this project.
Faculty office and support: Currently there is one table per classroom for teacher use. No other facilities have been provided. We need $3000-4000 for this project.
Student classrooms: classrooms need to be furnished. About $2000 is needed currently.
Food and Kitchen: Faculty and staff are provided with breakfast and lunch consisting of cooked cornmeal paste called ugali. Tiny whole fish and vegetables are added when available. Food is cooked on a single stove on the ground. Food is stored in a locked bedroom of a faculty member.
Outings: One of our most important offerings is field trips for the students. Many children had never seen Lake Victoria which is only two miles away, let alone the Rift Valley or a local volcano. The younger children have never been to a city or seen an indoor market.
Operations: As a Registered School we have new costs and requirements.
Emerging needs: To continue to grow a quality school, we need to be competitive.
