Bethany Joy School has been operating for a years with the financial support of their international sponsor The Watumull Family Children’s Fund (WFCF). It is located in Kawangware, a low-income area of Nairobi where families struggle to afford school tuition for their kids.
Initially, the school was operated in substandard premises. The redevelopment was spearheaded by WFCF in collaboration with the Sandy Vohra Foundation who assisted to raise funds. In the beginning, the parties reached out to Start Somewhere to construct the building because of the social and economic benefits. The school comprises of 18 classrooms, a staff room, office, kitchen and library and a two storey toilet block. We will be able to complete the project by the end of the year nad cant wait for the 800+ children who learn and eat at this school.
Future projects include the second school building for the remaining students and an neighboring orphanage.
