About this project

 On the Galana River in Kenya there is a village community, the Mwanza Community. Our association has built an elementary school there, which is state-approved and has three classrooms. From the original 120 students, a number of almost 400 students has now grown over time, so that a large part still has to be taught outside. This situation is very limiting and disadvantageous for the teachers and students, as outdoor classes are always subject to distractions and dependent on the weather.

The donations in this project are specifically needed to build more school buildings, purchase school equipment (blackboards, desks), build teacher housing (20 sqm one-room cottages with bed, table, chair) and repair/maintenance. 
Attached is a simple house for medical care of the students (so-called "sick room") because the children have accidents or injuries again and again and need to be treated. 

The teachers' dormitories are of the simplest type without sanitary facilities, because the teachers come from the city, which is 4 hours away by car, and live in the village community during school hours.

Education is the key to success for a self-determined life of the local people. In this way, community, food self-sufficiency and medical assistance are created.
