KENYA - Good Samaritan School


$43,727 raised

The coastal region of Kenya has the nations greatest number of children involved in sex trade due to the constant flow of international tourists and local and international business men coming for holidays in the scenic cities.

The most unfortunate situation is where destitute children are hired out as prostitutes. Broken homes and single mothers with no source of income will hire their children as prostitutes.

The Good Samaritan School is located in the center of the Mtwapa slum. Simple and underfinanced, they educate 250+ students under the instruction of dedicated teachers.

The school was founded by Christopher Ogaisamba to both educate slum children who had no chance for schooling and their parents.

  • The HOPE & GOOD SAMARITAN CENTER has officially been opened!

    After a year of dust, construction materials and a lot of hard work, the vision and the dream of an education center in the heart of the Mtwapa slums has become a reality.

    This grand event was celebrated by the 'fundis' (construction workers), students of the school, neighbours and honored guests. There was dancing, singing, acrobatics, prayers and well-wishers throughout the afternoon.

    Celebrations were followed by a love-feast where all the guests were fed with goat stew, fish, chicken and lots of rice. There was also plenty left over for the elderly neighbors who were unable to attend.

    This is the time to say "thank you" to all those who gave so generously to this center. Your investment in this community will pay dividends for generations to come!



  • I will be going to Mtwapa in early March and so look forward to meeting the construction workers and viewing their progress on the school construction.

    Working 6 days a week, they hope to have the walls up and the doors in. When I arrive, they will be putting on the roof.

    This project will accomodate 100 new students from the surrounding neigbourhood ... the Mtwapa, slum.

  • When foundations are being dug ... people walk by with curiosity.

    When walls begin to go up ... people begin to ask questions.

    When the Community Center is nearly completed ... people dance.

    The community was so excited about this center that they did not wait for the doors and windows to be installed. Instead, they cleaned the center and had their first meeting. Here is their report:

    "We finished the stairs and we have cleaned the new hall and the switch boxes have all been fixed, we did use it for prayer service this last Sunday and it was a great joy for everyone, we just tested a bit of what is YET TO COME when it is done. It was soo good !!!"
