ESHARELIFE ANNOUNCES SUPPORT FOR AVSI’S KENYAN PEOPLE FOR DEVELOPMENT PROJECT

Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, is home to Kibera, one of the world’s largest slums.

It houses between 170,000 and 1 million locals. Around half of Kenyans live below the poverty line with some 38.5 per cent of the adult population illiterate.  The population is young, around 73% are 30 or under.

Education is one of the biggest steps toward conquering poverty – it offers chances, hope and possibilities.  That’s why Esharelife has committed to support another of AVSI’s Kenyan projects, and support more than 100 students with scholarships at the St Kizito Vocational Training Institute.

The AVSI Foundation has supported the development of several schools in Kenya since the early 90s: kindergartens, elementary, middle, high school and VTIs.

Over time, these schools have shifted from receivers of support to fully-engaged partners in action with a mission to unlock children’s access to schooling.

St. Kizito Vocational Training Institute is one of the schools empowered by AVSI Foundation.

For a Brighter Future: Esharelife & AVSI

Little Prince School Kenya - AVSI Kenya

Last year Esharelife hosted a Christmas party with the aim of changing the lives of children living in dire conditions in a Kenyan slum. That party raised money that has been dedicated to supporting the chances and choices for 50 of those children – funding access to education and improved life skills.

Boys and girls living in one of the region’s hardest environments – a slum named Kibera – come from families for whom every day is a fight for survival.  Going to school means children receive at least one meal a day. School fees are beyond even the most optimistic hopes of their parents. That’s where AVSI comes in, and why Esharelife is proud to partner this incredible charity.
