St.James is a small community school located in a remote village of Nakuru Township; the school is built on a small piece of land donated by the community. It has one unsafe shabby wooden structure that accomodates both teachers and pupils. We need a combined effort to secure funding to construct a new permanent classroom! the community has limited resources and rarely meets the basic needs and can hardly maintain children reguraly in school, let alone undertake the role of building and providing required school facilities.
lack of classrom,inadequate desks, stationery, exercise and text books, lack of or torn school uniform is a routine spectacle in this school. Children fainting due to hunger-majority eat once a day or no meal at all, survive by begging, scavenging if lucky on handouts or by sheer God's grace. some pupils walk long distances to get to schoolusing path and thickets which open young girls to theft, abduction and rape which has been on the rise lately, it is a sorry state to behold. with a new classroom they will be protected from the elements as they learn. Approximately 80 children will be able to benefit. Everyday these children strive for a better future with the little they have. We can help their effort by supporting them in their strive for education.
