'Kenya Kesho' to develop public Primary school for Girls in Kwale
KWALE (Kenya Kesho) -- Work is in progress to construct and administer, on a professional basis, a primary school for girls, write Sandra and Peter Ruysenaars of the 'Kenya Kesho' project on the Kenya South Coast.

We need you to partner with us to make it happen!

We are so excited that our new project is already underway.

As the gap between rich and poor continues to grow in Kenya, so do the numbers of children who fall through the cracks.

Education for girls has been identified as one of the best solutions for reversing the relentless trend of poverty and is one of the most powerful tools to empower women within the family and society.

Educating a girl changes her destiny, raises families out of poverty, and is a starting point for social change.

Education is the key to unlocking the door of freedom for girls in our area of Kwale County.

By providing education in a very rural area we are setting new standards for taking responsibility for the future of girls.

We focus on maximum impact.

If we don’t act now another generation of girls from coastal southern Kenya will slip through the net of education.

To support the girls at The Kenya Kesho School for Girls, Mshiu Village, Kwale County we will join with donors, teachers, government officials, traditional authorities and parents in order to supply resources.

Research and programme experience suggest that building a quality school within a village and providing trained teachers, teaching materials, and a good curriculum are often enough to bring most girls into school—at least at the primary level – and encourages parents to get more involved in the education of their children.

Kenya Kesho will provide a quality education, with enough educated and trained teachers, updated books, desks and a curriculum that equips girls to cope in the modern world and that parents and girls themselves believe will be useful.

We expect the total capital outlay to be in the region of KShs 28 million, to be dispersed in two phases.

Phase I is expected to cost KShs 18 million and Phase II will cost KShs 10 million.

The completed school will eventually consist of 10 classrooms, an administration block, a computer room, a library and ablution facilities.

The operating costs for the first four years will be in the region of KShs 4 to 8 million per annum increasing to KShs 12 million once the school is running at full capacity.

By donating to and partnering with the Kenya Kesho Trust you can help ensure the establishment and continuation of the primary school.

There are lots of ways you can help:

• make a one-off payment towards construction and capital costs

• sponsor a child or teacher

• donate goods or services

• contribute KShs 750,000 to have naming rights to a classroom

• contribute your time or talents - talk to us about what you would like to offer!
