Fund A New Sustainable School in Kenya Slums

Our community school is at maximum capacity and not sustainable. It's the lifeline on the community but is in its knees. Help us as we build a new sustainable school that will be able to provide quality life changing education to over 300 children from the slums of Mombasa

Situation

The government is failing the education system and children are left to face no education and a continuing cycle of poverty. This is our problem, we have to stand up and solve it today, not leave it for tomorrow. Our school is overcrowded, unsustainable and is in danger of failing. Currently the students are funded by donations and support but we need to help make this more sustainable and open to all children within the community.

Solution

We have sourced the land and costed up the build of a new school. With a new school fully funded and owned by the school we removed the current expense of rent that the school can't afford. In the new school we will include a veggie garden, aquaponics system and chicken garden that with a sustainable rotation will reduce the current $1,300 a month food bill to feed all the children. We will purchase 10 motorcycles that will be rented to the community and all profits will fund the school
