“All who have meditated on the art of governing mankind have been convinced that the fate of empires depends on the education of the youth.” Aristotle
Prejudices, its well known are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilized by education, they grow there, firm as weeds among rocks.” Charlotte Bronte
At Happy Nairobi Kids, we believe in the importance of education. They say education is the key to life and at our organization, we literary believe in that. As much as we face insufficient resources, we try the best we can and go out of our way to ensure that the children in the home access education.
Our first priority and aim has been to ensure that the children are reintegrated into the main stream educational facilities as they deserve the right to receive education be it formal or informal. We have established a free nursery school which the younger kids attend, while the older ones attend public primary schools near the home. We also have kids who have cleared their primary education and are waiting to join secondary school and through guidance and counseling, we ensure that they are well equipped to enter into the next phase of their education.
Though we face financial constraints when it comes to purchasing stationery and school uniforms for the children, we try our best and ensure that the children attend school at all costs as we are trying to empower them to be skilled and independent in future. These children have a dream, a dream to be successful in future. With your support and prayers, we can surely make their dreams come true and turn them into reality.
If you educate a boy, you educate a man, if you educate a girl, you educate a family. If you educate both of them, you have educated a nation. These children are our future generation, our future nation; they deserve the best that education can offer to them!
