School renovation BenJos primary school Mathare
Because of Covid children where at home for almost a whole year in Kenya and everyone was happy when the schools finally where allowed to open doors again.
Unfortunatly this was not the case for teacher Benter as her school underwent an inspection and she was not allowed to open the school for her students as the place was not in a good state inside and also outside.
Benters income is her school. She also has a family to take care of and even her own children where about to go back to school but how could she pay their schoolfees if she could not start her work herself.
And also her students could not go back so she was also about to loose her students to a different school.
Foundation Move Up together with the school and the inspector made a list about what was needed to open the school as soon as possible and we budgeted the costs of the renovation which came round € 300
Thanks to the support from many well wishers and Foundation Red Ribbon we could start the rebuilding project already one week later.
We worked hard for 1 week and just one month later than the rest of the schools BENJOS PRIMARY SCHOOL finally could open their doors
We celebrated the opening with the kids and their smiles were priceless
Education is the key to a better future . Foundation Move Up is grateful that we could help many children to go back to school
