In the past, we have carried out some teacher development work with Elpo School (formerly known as Hope Community School) which was initially opened as a 14-pupil school in January 2015 to offer low-cost education for primary-aged children. Originally meeting in a small building at the ICA centre, its accommodation was simple; a bare concrete floor, tin roof and no furniture. In the playground, a solitary metal slide, and a broken swing set.
So, why do we support Education? Because it holds a vital key to Kibera’s development. It might not change the whole slum, but if some simple support can brighten the future of a few children, we believe it’s worth it.
Currently, we are focusing on the training of teachers in:
Developing a policy
Working with the community
Rewards and sanctions
