Until now, Kipawa has focussed on the main aim of ensuring that children in Ruiru are fed and attending school.
As well as continuing to provide lunches and porridge in Mukuya, and building on the health and counselling programmes in place, we will help to extend the nursery provision.
Nursery education is not currently provided by the Kenyan government and relies on financial contributions from parents. Kipawa will part-fund the provision of nursery teachers in Kipawa.
Following the successful renovation of the boys' toilet block at Mukuya, we are finalising the plans to building new facilities for the girls.
In the coming months we will be refurbishing two further classrooms in Mukuya to the same standard as the new nursery classroom which was completed last year.
Sponsoring Secondary Education
The scholarships will include funding for the full four years of secondary school plus the necessary social work and other support to ensure that the young people can make the most of their education.
