Our orphanage has more than 110 orphans in total. Most of them living at the children's home. There they have a place to sleep, eat and feel safe. Just like a home should be. Aside from having a home and something to eat every day, education is the most important thing in our orphanage. We try to get the best education for every single child. For this reason we built our own private school next to the orphanage, called Lekuruki School, where we educate our own children together with children from the neighborhood. The school grows every year. At the moment we do have baby-class, pre-unit, class 01 to 08 and since 2018 also the possibility to do KCPE (Kenyan Certificate of Primary Education). As long as they have a sponsor, they continue going for secondary schooling to a bording school. Boys and girls can stay here until they are done with their education.
Paying school fees for the children in secondary school and covering the feed for Lekuruki School has been a big challenge so far. In case of secondary school we have to pay on average 600€ each year per child depending on the school. The children in our own school are in need of roughly 250€ to cover the salaries of the teacher, food, stationary supply and running costs like water, electricity and other small things. Therefore we need your support! If you wish to support one of the children, we and especially the children would be extremely grateful!
You may ask yourself what is included in daily life and education. We can promise you that you will cover all basic needs of the children. Daily life includes three meals a day (breakfast, lunch, supper), medical care, general costs (water, fire-wood, electricity, salaries, security). Education includes teacher salaries, food (snack, lunch), stationary supply an of course running costs. Not included is the construction of new class-rooms.
