Uzimatele in Kiswahili means “a good life”. That is the Motto of the Primary School in Gituamba, a slum in Nairobi. Thanks to the support from Brot für die Welt and several private donors, we were able to expand the capacity of our school to accommodate for more than 400 students. The Uzimatele Educational Centre, which is in centrally located in Gituamba, has enabled several children of this poor neighborhood to easily attend school.
With your help, we have already been able to acquire sufficiently large water tanks, the equipment of three more classrooms and adequate fire safety. Thank you!
In a next step we want to engage in higher quality of education, safety for our school and pupils by building a perimeter wall and opening a library for the children to have access to good literature.
