Help our Non-Profit: Preschool supplies and sewing supplies for orphaned African students
Carleigh Nichole started the campaign

History is being made in the largest slum in Africa.

Kibera is where almost 2 million people huddle in concrete, 12-foot square rooms pinched along the hills in Nairobi, Kenya – no electricity, no water, no plumbing. Grandmothers struggle, like most residents, to care for their families that can include as many as 10-12 people living in these concrete squares. 

In 2010 these grandmothers, with the help of The Nyanya Project (www.nyanyaproject.org) opened a preschool in Kibera where they could prepare hot meals and help the teacher and other women could feel safe about sending their small children there. Today, the preschool has expanded to include three rooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, two outdoor toilets, a sewing center with ten machines, and playground equipment. The grandmothers work at the sewing center and sell school uniforms they have made to raise money for the preschool, which is run and sustained by the participants themselves. 

Please consider contributing to this wonderful cause: $1200 will provide three months of funding for both TNP's preschool and its affiliated sewing center.

Your donations will help purchase three months of supplies for the sewing center cooperative that keeps the preschool running. Donations will also be used to purchase three months' worth of educational supplies and hot meals for the young African orphans and faculty who make the long walk to the Nyanya Preschool. Thank you for your support! www.nyanyaproject.org
