Seed School Kibra

Seed School Kibra

This program is meant to offer basic and high quality education to the very less and underprivileged Kibera slum children who would otherwise not be in any position to access this most valuable resource in one’s life.

We usually do screening for approximately twenty children aged between three to five years and take them through the (E.C.D.) Early Childhood Development. We take the children through a systematic educational and learning program to prepare them be able to join the primary schooling curriculum.

The long term plan and approach is only to hope that someday we may be able to come up with a fully fledged primary school to meet the needs of children in such situations and circumstances and in need.

Seed School Kibera started in the year 2007. This was courtesy of the efforts of Aouki Patrick and some youths. There were also two Canadian students by then studying at the Mac Master University in Canada. They Were Meghan Bruni and Rebecca Nadarajah.

Activities:

We have been assembling beads, recycled bone curvings to produce necklaces, earrings and bracelets for the sole purpose of selling to raise some fast and direct income to support the school activities.

The children from the SEED School also spend most of their free time and especially during the school holidays and weekends to entertain the community and participate in various functions. This ensures that they do not miss use their free time to get into drugs or the most common vices in the society.

We also strive to ensure that we offer them extra academic tuition in the evenings to broaden their minds more and bring up renewed understanding into whatever the y have already been taught. There has been the challenge of the children being able to get any extra curricula learning activities and exposure as currently we cannot a afford to take them for trips or teach them through any Audio visuals methods as there is no any projector or television which they can be taught with.

We hope this will be possible sometime soon and with the current ongoing developments across the globe, we are also anticipating that we can be able to socially invest in some information technology items such as computers to give them an opportunity to learn how these gadgets are operated and the technological approach in using these. When our repairs at the school will be formally complete we will have a room designated for computer laboratory and maybe internet connectivity and a room for maybe LCD project viewing to for learning purposes.
