The Sustainability Programme

While we hope to remain in contact with our schools for many years to come, we don't want them to be dependent on us. Our sustainability programme works with the schools to open up new income streams and to make economies so that they can operate on a self-funded basis.

Too many schools in the Nairobi slums are in arrears with teachers' salaries because they can't balance the books. Relying on school fees from the poorest communities in society creates a situation where making ends meet is pretty much impossible. Our schools have been brought up to date with paying teachers' salaries, and we are working with them to make this the norm, not the exception.
