Our project is supported by the donation campaign "Golf for Charity" (http://www.cp-golf.com). Thanks a lot to Patrick and Christian Plog!
Our vision: To give an opportunity to children and young people in Kenya for having a life with positive perspectives.
Our basic idea: Helping people to help themselves.
Our aim: Education of children and young people to enable them to find their own way into a self-sufficient life.
One of the fundamental causes of poverty is the lack of opportunity to receive a sustainable education. While the official school system in Kenya may make it possible now for many children to attend free public primary schools, any access of the kids to secondary schools and further education still remains practically out of reach for most families for reasons of costs.
In early 2006 we began to set up, on our own initiative and using our own financial resources, what is today the „Lakewood Green Olive High School“.
The objective of our project is to enable young people, particularly those from economically disadvantaged families, to benefit from a sound advanced school education leading to the state-recognized K.C.S.E. qualification. This certificate opens the door for young people to embark on a qualified vocational training in a craft trade and/or commerce.
Other concerns emphasized by our school project are actively increasing HIV/AIDS awareness, permanently alerting our students to the risks and potential consequences of substance abuse by addiction and drug prevention programmes and conveying possibilities for the use of alternative energy sources.
The HEALTH CARE AND INFIRMARY WARD is very important for a comprehensive school operation. Often enough it is a major problem, not only for our "boarders" but also for our "day students", to find a way to avail themselves of medical care and treatment.
First contacts to a resident medical practitioner in Malindi have shown that it would be possible to establish a form of "local supply of medical care" with specified visiting hours. And the population in the vicinity could take advantage from that service and surgery office as well.
This is the reason why we have decided to develop and set up a HEALTH CARE AND INFIRMARY WARD, and why we sincerely ask you to help with a donation.
