EmmanuelFounder
I started our Kenyan based charity school in 2012 while pursuing a degree in Development Studies at Mount Kenya University. I need volunteers to help me make it a success. The objective of the school was to enable the needy and vulnerable (orphans) pupils to access education in a school near their homes .Previously they used to cover a distance of about four kilometers daily walking to the nearest school in the morning and back in the evening. They also had to brave the hot scorching sun walking to and from school .Others had to be carried by their mothers on their backs to ferry them safely across a seasonal river that separates the two schools and which sometimes floods dangerously during the rainy season. This used to be a very tedious exercise since the small children aged between 3 -years old had to be escorted by their parents in the morning and carried back in the afternoon. This also affected the parent’s daily activities like farming, working on construction sites since there is a lot of construction going on in the upcoming settlement area, small businesses and other household chores.Read more
