Families For Survival Uk
One of the most important things for any child is a good education from an early age. They need to be taught social skills and learn to interact with their contemporaries and ideally teaching should begin at home.
A local council for children in Kenya has reported that “approximately one million Kenyan children do not attend school despite the introduction of free primary education by government”. At least 40 percent of Kenyan children who completed their primary education did not proceed to high school while most of them have fallen prey to cases of child trafficking and harmful and cultural practices.
Families for Survival UK is working through it’s local Kenyan charity Pastoralist Community Initiative Development and Assistance (PACIDA) to educate the Kenyan Street children, Orphan children and other vulnerable, which is directly managed and monitored by it’s Trustees.
Families for Survival UK is providing bursary (tuition) to about 100 high school students those who are from very poor background. We are funding for the education programme in Kenya and working hard to fulfill our committed promise. Families for Survival UK is supporting the parent teacher association through it’s recent project Turbi Education Support Project (TESP) with a motivation cause ‘Let’s make a literate World’.
Families for Survival UK forms mobile education. In this form of education teachers are attached to a nomadic family or group of families. By day, children too young even to herd small stock attend the school; at night the older children, who have spent the day herding sheep and goats, attend. After three years in the mobile school it is planned that children will enroll in conventional boarding schools. Currently we are supporting infrastructure development of schools through construction of classrooms, dormitories, dining halls, administration blocks, sanitary facilities, water tanks and provision of teaching and learning materials. Families for Survival UK supports schools through nutrition and food supplies to rural schools to enhance enrollment, retention and transition from lower to higher levels.
