A recent report on education by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) shows that 1 in every three families in Kenya and Uganda borrows money for school fees. Meet vulnerable students from Njumbi High school in Murang’a county in central Kenya whose parents cannot afford to raise their school fees since joining the school.
The school office of the Champlain asked the school managed to allow it to manage the school canteen to help raise the fees that cater to these students’ school fees, uniform, pocket money, or logistics to and back from school. What are the challenges the students faced? How does the canteen generate income, and how is the cover-19 pandemic jeopardizing the school’s fundraising efforts? And how can you help put a smile on these children this holiday season?
Thank you so much for your support that year. Knowing that you are listening has given me the energy to produce an episode every Tuesday. We are taking a three-week break starting next week, resuming on Tuesday 11th January. From my team and me we wish you happy holidays!
