Each month, third and fourth graders at the Judah Educational Centre in Nairobi, Kenya take time off from their studies to clean-up the neighborhood. “We normally carry out a monthly cleanup day to teach the children to be responsible members of the community,” says Elizabeth Nyaga, the Centre’s hardworking director. With few resources, but a fierce determination to make a difference in the children’s lives, the Judah Center provides elementary education to students living in the Mathare slum neighborhood. Garbage disposal is a major challenge in Mathare as is providing quality education for the thousands of children who live in the area. Although primary education is supposed to be free to all Kenyan children, the fact remains that it’s up to community schools like Judah to educate local kids. The children shown here are wearing homemade protective gear made from locally available materials. The Judah Centre, established in 2015 with just three students, now provides primary education to more than 50 deserving youngsters.

A single case of polio has prompted Kenyan authorities to immunize every child in the country. Africa is on the verge of being declared polio-free by the World Health Organization, but, even so, this age-old scourge continues to harm the most vulnerable among us -- our children. Recently, local health officers administered the oral polio vaccine to each of the students at the Starkid School and Rescue Centre in Nairobi’s Githogoro slum. Our partners at Starkid, with a bit of help from African Childrens Haven, work hard to keep the children healthy, an effort that includes making sure they receive adequate nutrition and safe drinking water. Your support makes that possible. Thank You! Asante Sana!!

With your help, we’re working to make primary and secondary education available to hundreds of girls in Kenya, Tanzania and Ethiopia. It’s a great investment that will pay dividends down the road. Educating girls not only boosts their earning power, it helps ensure that their children will also receive the benefits of an education. Here are five more reasons to invest in a girl’s education:

1. Higher Incomes: Educated girls are more likely to enter the workforce and earn more —up to 25 percent more.

2. Delayed Marriage and Fewer Children: Girls who leave school are often forced to marry early—often as young as 10 years of age – and begin having children.

3. Healthier Families: Educated girls are better equipped to care for their children and families.

4. Reduced HIV/AIDS Risk: Girls who attend school and receive sex education are three times less likely to become AIDs victims.

5. Less Poverty: An educated girl, on average, spends 90 percent of her income on her family.

Their classrooms are pretty basic but these first graders at the Judah Educational Centre in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya come to school every day ready to work and ready to learn. Although their school fees are modest, the children’s hard-working parents struggle each month to pay them on time. African Childrens Haven helps out by providing additional funds for teacher salaries, school supplies and the lunch program. It’s your support that makes that possible. Thank you!
