KENYA - Hope Gateway Education Center


$11,030 raised

The Sinai slum in Kenya hosts a population of over 200,000 men, women and children. With a population of squatters, there are no public schools available. There are a few private schools in the slum but most families cannot afford the school fees.

Hope Gateway Education Center is located in the center of Sinai slum and is run by our agent who is committed to providing education for the children in their community. Life outside the walls of this school is desperate and dirty, but inside, life is peaceful and productive.

The school began in 2005 with kindergarten and grades 1 - 2. Today, there are over 200 children at the school with classes from nursery to grade 5! Each child receives 2 meals a day at the school, instruction and a school uniform. Students at the school are not required to pay any fees. The curriculum is approved by the Kenyan government and the children write state exams at the end of each school year. Thanks to their hard work and excellent teachers, the students' achievements have been great!

And the impact of Hope Gateway Education Center is not limited to the students; the school has also had a positive effect on the lives of the students' families and community - creating employment, opportunities and hope.
