Education Assistance

Join us in our mission to enhance the lives of children in East African countries by providing books, improved learning environments and basic needs at the Primary level as well as sponsorships for students to attend quality Secondary schools. By educating these girls and boys, we hope to help them 'Bloom where they are planted' - to prosper and be good citizens in their own countries, promoting peace and good will in the world.

It happened one safari...

In September 2003, we visited a Primary School in Kenya with a delivery of books and pencils — there were over 300 children in the courtyard to greet us — we were treated like royalty!  The dancing, singing and smiles of the children won our hearts.

 

When we came home, we could not get the school out of our minds and decided to continue to help.

 

Today, at our adopted Kenyan school, all classrooms have a cement floors; the rooms have been plastered and painted white; there is a library with books about Africa, America, England and other parts of the world; the roof and exterior of the building have been painted; all rooms have new desks.

 

The students now have a playing field, complete with goal posts, uniforms and balls; there is a veranda around the school to keep the dirt out of the classrooms, especially in the rainy season. We have added offices; more classrooms; water storage; a kitchen and LUNCHES. There are new toliets, wash basins and shower rooms; metal doors and windows where there were none, and, a garden to teach the students about eco-farming. 

 

Recently, our major focus has been on providing Secondary Education to the top students as there are no free secondary schools in Kenya. Today, close to 100 students have been sponsored to attend secondary schools and some have gone on to study at the university level!
