In 2006, Dr. Sheri Fink, a journalist at Public Radio International PRI / BBC USA came to Kenya to investigate the “Shadow Cities: A Billion Squatters, A New Urban World” and confirmed that the poor living conditions are in every slums and villages of Africa. The target of our foundation became to improve lives in Africa.
Actually, as we are limited by funds, our activities are concentrated first in Nairobi slums and rural areas Kisii-Nyamira, Kakamega and West Pokot. Our supported vulnerable children to access education in the community schools are subjected to waterborne diseases which keep them out of school.
We are focused on bringing vulnerable children in schools and making clean water, reliable toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, in Kenya within a generation. In fact, the lack of clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene keeps kids out of school, adults out of work and traps people in poverty. We are determined to tackle the lack of clean water and sanitation, in ways that last, for changing people’s lives for better.
The world has never faced the critical challenges now expanding around it. Future leaders and entrepreneurs are completely unprepared to deal effectively with the ongoing acute challenges. There is a strong need of a community leading the world in leadership training and innovative community development advancement. . However, millions are still denied the chance to go to school, One million children are still out of school in Kenya. While this is almost half the number in 2018, it is still the ninth highest of any country in the world.
In fact, progress in education is not reaching the marginalized, the poor, and girls most of all, have far less chance of making it to school. In Nairobi, almost all children from rich households go to school, whether boy or girl. But 55% of poor girls living in the Kisii-Nyamira, Kakamega and West Pokot have never been to school, with 43% of poor boys in the region in the same situation. Anyway, the abolition of secondary school fees reduced the costs for households, indirect costs are still twelve to twenty times as much as the monthly income of parents in rural areas, leaving secondary school out of reach for the poorest households.
The US$164 that is allocated to compensate secondary schools for having abolished school fees is ten times the amount per pupil annually received by primary schools. Boarding schools go to even US$400. Only a minority of children from poor rural households or urban slums make it to secondary school. The increased investment would be more equitably distributed if it were geared towards remote rural areas, slum settlements and pastoralist communities. About 60% of Nairobi’s 3 million inhabitants live in slums. In four of the poorest slums: Kibera, Mukuru, Korogocho and Viwandani, young people make up almost a third of the population. With no secondary schools in the slums, only 19% of men and 12% of women have attended secondary school in Korogocho.
About 50% of men and 80% of women aged 15 to 24 in the slums have no income-generating activities.
