Elimu Founder Presentation at 1 PM
Nina Chung, Founder of Elimu will share stories and images from Kenya:
- how it all started with 2 boys to kindergarten;
- how girls in our projects are changing the future;
- how our sewing project saves vulnerable girls from early marriage;
- how our digital education resource centre is changing education in the community
Elimu is a registered Canadian charity working to enhance access to education so as to empower Kenyan children, youth and adults to become more enterprising in how they approach their futures. Elimu's digital resource centre uses technology to provide scarce educational resources and to modernize the community with digital skills. Our sponsorship project keeps kids in school who would otherwise drop out and our sewing project trains girls with income generating skills and helps them start their own businesses.
Over twelve years, Elimu has helped 50 young women gain independence with their own sewing businesses. We’ve kept over 200 kids from dropping out of school. Our Elimu Resource Centre receives up to 300 primary and high school students per day during school holidays and delivers a digital reading program to classrooms for children who may never even have held a paper textbook before.
Last year, we raised $5,000 for Elimu Resource Centre. Will you help us reach our goal of $6,000 this year.
These funds will help to:
- keep our mobile digital reading program travelling to schools to build literacy for children who seldom see either textbooks or story books.
- continue the digital classrooms at a girls’ rescue centre and local prison as part of the rehabilitation programs.
