Begun in 2007, eduKenya is a movement of people that are driven by the love of Christ to have an impact on the world. It is a catalyst for change in Mathare, a community of about 600,000 people in Nairobi, Kenya, who are languishing in abject poverty. eduKenya offers opportunity for the people of Mathare to break that cycle and transform their community through the purposeful, transformative education of the next generation. eduKenya began with the Mawewa Preschool and Primary School, both located in, and serve, the children of Mathare. It is a holistic educational experience which includes feeding and medical care programs, field trips, athletics, music, drama and scouts. eduKenya has grown to include a boarding school that is located about three hours from Nairobi. It is a safe, quiet environment where students can learn without being subject to the dangers of living in Mathare. They have the opportunities to learn Spanish, participate in math and debate competitions and pursue practical education in areas such as organic farming, sewing and hairdressing, all while enjoying spacious green spaces and comfortable dormitories.

When eduKenya’s Mawewa School first started in Jangwani in 2007 they had 27 children. Today, the school serves 342 children and impacts over 1,000 more people through the school and its auxiliary programs.
Would you consider partnering with eduKenya to empower the children of Mathare? When you sponsor a class you give children like Faith the opportunity to thrive and break the cycle of poverty.
