About us

Children's school from kindergarden through 5th grade with an enrollment of 200, held in the Wateule Baptist Church, that was established in 2006. The school serves a very poor village (slum) where few can afford tuition and many don't care if their child gets an education. Many of the students are orphans and there is a mix of Christians and Muslims. A good lunch is provided for all students and for many that is the only food they get. The church and school are both registered with the Kenyan government and have license to operate, however due to lack of funds there is difficulty meeting physical government standards, but the educational standards are good. The students sit on straw mats on a dirt floor and use the church pews (crude backless wood benches) as desks. There is one pit latrine with two "toilets" over it for the entire school. Water has been a problem, but currently a well is being dug and has reached water. The student teacher ratio ranges from 60:1 to 20:1 depending on the class with some grades combined.

Donations that cannot be used for the project

Dear donors,
when managers of a project haven't requested a payout over the course of a longer period, the German law and our terms of use provide that we (gut.org gemeinnützige AG, operator of betterplace.org) use the money for our tax-deductible purposes. The same applies to the cancellation of a project, where the manager of the project is unable to realize it.

Therefore we will use these donations for the following purposes

Thanks for your support,
the betterplace.org-team
