EDUCATION SUPPORT PROJECT
Home EDUCATION SUPPORT PROJECT
Due to lack of proper education amongst the community of Mathare Slums in Nairobi County, illiteracy and poverty level increased tremendously. Here is Life CBO saw the need of establishing an Educational support Project within the lucky summer church of Christ to bring light in the form of knowledge and education to the vast slum of Mathare. This project supports needy children with an opportunity to access education, by providing them with school fees, uniforms, all inclusive. It is important to note that in a bid to change the life of the orphans and vulnerable children in slums; educational support has to be ensured while packaging the components of this project.
Here’s life is at the moment running the following center
Emanuel learning center in Soweto slums is an extension of lucky summer church of Christ schools with 100 children, 65 girls and 35 boys. We provide free sanitary towels to girls every month, offer nutritious porridge at break time and lunch every day .This Centre host 48 vulnerable children who are HIV positive, the remaining 52 are orphans. We welcome any support that would help in changing the desperate lifestyle of these children however small it is. The impact of this initiative is easily measurable through taking a closer look at the lives of these children before and after they have joined this program .HERE IS LIFE trains vulnerable young girls on production of low cost but high quality-hygienic sanitary pads. This need had been developed through observation that most women especially widows in low income households lack access to this valuable commodity and in some instance they have been using old blankets or old socks!
