This is a programme where 19 girls get educational support by sponsors. The main goal is to pay school fees and some basic equipment’s to help the girls access education in a better way.
When the programme started the girls stayed at the children’s home ran by Stawisha Jamii, but after some time we found a solution whereby they were taken back to their parents/guardians.
The organization now helps the girls from their homes where we are supporting them with school fees and we are in much communication with the parents for follow ups. Once in a while the girls come to the education center where the teachers talk, guide, counsel and mentor them.
Nakuru center 5-12 years
We have 22 learners who are helped in school work and practical sessions by qualified teachers.
The public schools in Kenya are of poor quality, they are of very high population and due to this it’s quite overwhelming for the teacher to handle a class thus the teacher cannot reach the learners at individualized levels, for instance a class of 80-100 learners handled by one teacher.
This is where the programme comes in and aims at helping these learners get quality education. The learners are given light meals before going home.
Kabazi center 10-15 year - With the special focus on girls
Stawisha Jamii has a land in Kabazi approximately 36 km from Nakuru town. This is a very remote and poor area. For us to achieve and access quality education we are helping the children in Kabazi and its surroundings. They are 17 children at the center who come from less privileged backgrounds and public schools.
Thus they come at the center for Academic coaching, guidance and counselling, mentorship sessions and practical sessions to help them survive and grow in the digital world. They are trained by a qualified teacher and are given light meals before going home.
Another important activity in Kabazi is the model farm which involves the parents of the kabazi children. They come together and do farming activities and they are guided by the teacher and a consultant. The parents also do table banking where 50% of the money is shared among the parents to help them cater for their basic needs and the remaining 50% is saved for future use specifically to expand the farming activity (model farm).
