HEAL Raising Our World Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, operates a children's home and secondary school in Nyahururu, Kenya. We educate over 80+ students in our school. Many of our students are unable to pay school fees. The closest school is over a 1 hour walk. We are providing quality secondary education to students who would in most cases dropout of school because of the challenges they face.
One ongoing financial issue we face is the challenge of offering our teaching staff a competitive salary. The average salary for a teacher at our school is $160 per month, while teachers at a government school earn $210 per month. The difference is significant and has impacted our ability to retain quality staff. We love our teachers and all of the great work they do in educating the kids at HEAL. In order to keep great educators and attract new ones to help us continue to improve learning standards, we need to offer higher wages.
Keeping good teachers year after year is a stabilizing force for the whole community. Please help us meet our goal of $1,000 today!
