When we arrive at one of the governmental primary schools which are not in good conditions here in Boguma county, Kenya, there are hundreds of children. Officially, a school for 400 students. But the number is students is growing every day: around 700 children are sitting in the classrooms. The number of teachers is far to low, the boards are broken. The water filters do not work. One toilet for girls, one for boys. Many children just have one meal per day.
There is a lot to do. We will develop together with the local ministry, the headmaster and teachers, students and parents a new building and start a hygiene program. We will need to do more. Engaging the parents, empowering the community. Step by step.
Because education matters. Because we believe in the future. And because together we can do so many things. The concrete planning has already started.
