NEIGHBOURS AID BUILDING LIVES THROUGH EDUCATION

IMG_1831Neighbours Aid is committed to building young lives in developing nations through providing educational opportunities for orphans and vulnerable children.  The Millennium Development Goals aimed for free primary education for all children. However the reality is that in countries like Kenya many classes have 100 children in them. Some of those teachers tell us students arrive with empty stomachs making learning impossible. Many children do not complete primary school.  Illiterate parents in developing nations do not always understand the importance of education and choose to keep their children at home to care for younger siblings, work in the fields or beg on the streets.IMG_5108

Neighbours Aid provides two meals each day and continues to support village children attending high schools and tertiary institutions after they graduate from our schools. Our first high school graduate Joseph began his primary schooling at the age of 12. He begins university next semester. While he waits he is working as a teacher aide at Kitale Hope Academy.
