Maji Mazuri Academy, located at the heart of Mathare slums, has brightened the hope of a future for Mathare’s children through its education program. With your generous donations, sponsorship and support, children born in this poverty and violence stricken area now have a chance to smile.
Mathare Valley slum has an estimated 70,000 children, with only 3-4 schools to educate them. Educating these children and empowering them with knowledge, saves them from a life of crime and prostitution and gives them a chance to better their lives and their community.
70% of the world’s out-of-school children are girls. In Mathare Valley, some girls end up in prostitution at the age of 9 and some boys become drug runners at the age of 5, because there is not enough food at home. For many, education is not even a distant dream. These children deserve better. They deserve safe environments, quality education, and support that allows them to realize their full potential.
You can make a difference.
