St Monica’s School
St Monica’s School is located in Kibera, Kenya. Kibera is Africa’s largest slum housing 100,000 orphaned children who do not receive basic food or education.
The school was founded in 2004 by Margaret Atieno, a local woman dedicating her time to support children in the local community. Margaret set up a nursery school in order to educate local underprivileged children who could not afford state school. There was no government body assisting the school in funding.
The school educates 90 children aged 3-11 years, many of which are living with HIV/AIDS, orphans, and others from poor families. The school consists of three classrooms, a kitchen, two toilets and an office. The school has one qualified teacher and two trainee teachers.
Nia Children’s Foundation supported St Monica’s with food supplies from April 2009 until June 2013.
St Monica’s is also supported by the Volunteers Foundation.
