For those of you who don’t know, the Kickstarter class will aim to help reintegrate children who have dropped out of school or who have never attended school in the first place, back into the school environment. These are often the kids who are least well off and they will benefit from a smaller class size, focussed intervention and dedicated social worker support. Once they are ready the children will rejoin their peer group in regular classes.
The great news is that we have raised more than our target and so we will be going forward as quickly as possible to get this new class off the ground. The first step will be to build a new classroom for the class – our success with the feeding programme has meant that the other classrooms are very full. At the same time, our partners in Kenya will be identifying children who would benefit most from the programme. We will keep you posted as the work progresses.
In the meantime, here’s a message from the kids.
