Kenya


      kenya


      Kenya is one of the most populous countries in Africa, with about 39 million people. HIV, orphans, vulnerable children and poverty are some of the issues facing the people of this East African country. In the Education sector, there is a lack of access to quality education, lack of access to education for orphans and vulnerable children, and a lack of competency and training amongst teachers (in particular in the field of ICT and Early Childhood Education).

      Our work in Kenya is primarily focused in the slums of Nairobi and also in Western Kenya in Kisumu. We gather together local villages, schools and NGO's to strengthen and equip them through training.
