Education, FROM THE FIELD

Construction progress: Emmanuel Vocational-Technical School in Kibera!

On November 19th, 2008, our team in Kibera, Kenya broke ground on our Job Creation project, the Emmanuel Vocational-Technical School. This is a unique school in the Kibera slums of Nairobi, Kenya which will provide job training to many youth in the area. 180 new high school students that may not be in school now will receive vocational training.

We wanted to share the progress of the construction, as the future students’ dreams are soon to be realized, thanks to YOU!

So far, they have completed the foundation work as you can see from these photos. Our team reported back that “…it has not been easy. It involved a lot of steel bending as you can see in the pictures, again the place is swampy hence a lot of water during digging.”

We’ll keep you updated on the progress and look forward to the day when the school can be opened!
