Local people asked us to support literacy classes for adults, so we started in late 2012.

088-mdOur census of the area around our school revealed many adults wanted help with reading and writing. They had either not been to school, or had not completed a full education.

Better literacy – as well as a basic right – also improves people’s chances of getting a job and of receiving decent healthcare.

Kenya’s literacy rates – 90% for males and 83% for females (World Bank, 2010) – are good for Africa. But these overall figures hide pockets of poor literacy in the country. People themselves see the benefit and want to help themselves, with a little support from us.

Support our literacy classes by giving as little as £3 a month.
