Supporting Tharua Special School with a new Boarding House and Toilet/Shower Block

Every child matters

Working on the ground within poor schools in Kenya, we come across many practical needs and opportunities to better the lives of young people, both in the big and small ways. Our 'Generous' projects enable partners to also join in this vision - to make a practical and visible difference in the lives of young people, which not only encourages, but also equips them for their future.

Our main project that we are working on is with Tharua Special School. We are building them a boarding house and also supporting more students to attend the special needs school. We would love to partner with you on this worth while project.

Generous is a recently established charitable arm of RFM Africa. Generous.org.uk is currently in the process of becoming a registered UK charity.

The Kenya Trust has launched Generous to practically support students in the poor schools that they work with.

 

Ways in which we are helping: 

  • Supporting a special needs school in Laikipia both with new buildings and child sponsorship

  • Water and Food: Establishing feeding programmes in schools, so that no child has to learn on an empty stomach.

  • Sport: Providing footballs and other sports equipment to enhance exercise and boost concentration for learning.

  • Internet access for education: Facilitating internet connections so that teachers and pupils can enrich their subject learning.

  • Developing Infrastructure: Supporting a SEN special boarding school to establish better sanitation and sleeping arrangements for their highly vulnerable students.

Sport really makes a difference to the school day, but so often the students don’t have the resources to access this. Above, shows the joy that one simple ball can bring.

Giving that has a long-lasting impact

Because the young people of today will become the adults of tomorrow…

We want to invest in poor underprivileged students in Kenya so that they are better equipped to complete their education and to flourish.

With most schools being only a maximum 20 minute drive from our HQ, we are able to efficiently oversee and personally deliver on all our projects.
