New Adventure School
In Nairobi lies the Kibera slum, home to over a million people and a metropolis as filthy and corrupt as it is thriving.
Within its endless warren of mud shacks and polluted streets of Kibera,New Adventure School provides over 400 children with primary school education and at least one much-needed meal each day.
New Adventure School initially consisting of one hall with teachers struggling to conduct five classes within this space. Since partnering with be* has assisted New Adventure School in relocating to a more appropriate site, where it now has twelve classrooms, a cookhouse, toilets and a play area. be* also provided support to rebuild when a devastating fire which ravaged a significant portion of the slum unfortunately damaged a section of the school.
The school is now fully restored and be* has completed our work with this projects. Other donors have come on board to look after the ongoing needs of the school.
