We pay for two meals per day in the Loruabe Primary School Boarding section to keep girls safe and in school. Currently 106 Girls share 60 beds. We urgently need to buy new beds and matrasses and also enlarge the dormitory in the near future.

About this project

We are collecting for the Capricorn Foundation that supports two educational programs in Kenya mainly for girls. You can read up on all our activities and developments here www.capricorn-foundation.com.
Girls are still being marginalized in many rural areas in Kenya and are often married off at an too early stage, become pregnant and still have to undergo female genital mutilation (FGM). Even though this is illegal, traditions and beliefs are hard and slow to change. 
In the Samburu region (mainly nomadic Pokot, Turkana and Samburu live here) we maintain two boarding schools for mainly girls. By doing so the girls are safe and can continue their schooling without the interference of tradions and family beliefs. For the maintenance of the boarding houeses we urgently need your help.

The Capricorn Foundation works out of Munich in Germany and is assisted in all administrative issues by Haus des Stiftens gGmbH, Munich. Many of our donors are from the Munich area.
