Tomorrow is tough for lots of kids. Tomorrow for kids from poor families in Kenya can be a nightmare. Kenya Kesho – translated into English means “Kenya for Tomorrow” - helps make tomorrow a far more optimistic and cheerful world for clever kids from very poor families. Although education is “free” in Kenya, books, uniforms, boarding fees, etc. are expensive and very elusive for poor families.
Kenya Kesho is at present paying full educational scholarships to secondary school for 15 boys and girls. Kenya Kesho also pays for 14 primary school teachers in 10 schools in the location. We have 8,900 kids in primary school with 76 teachers – excluding our hard working and very dedicated team. They make a huge difference and we need LOTS MORE TEACHERS. Why don’t you help sponsor a teacher? Are you a teacher? Would you like to come and work in Kenya for some time at any one of our Primary Schools? If so, please log onto http://www.KenyaKesho.com or http://www.KenyaKesho.org and fill in the form. We’ll pick you up at the airport! Welcome.
Kenya Kesho has also committed to building a dormitory building for the Kichakamkwaju Deaf Unit here in Shimoni. We’ve already refurbished a classroom block, made desks and chairs, and purchased 8 sewing machines.
Charlies Claw’s Restaurant on Wasini Island is proud to be a major contributor of funds towards the charitable work of Kenya Kesho. This is accomplished through the sale of re-cycled coconuts, which are filled with ufutas (sesame seed, Swahili sweets, made locally in the village). In addition, 100 /- for each and every guest on the tour is given to Kenya Kesho from the tour price.
