New grants from the UN and the Chilean Government
We have been awarded with the "Chile Fund" by AGCID and UNDP! It is the second time they trust us, which makes us very proud. This time the fund will be to finance the project to strengthen psychosocial skills through community-led socio-sports workshops in 2 slums in Kenya (Kibera and Mathare). These workshops will be held in partnership with Fundación Fútbol Más
We are very grateful and happy as we managed to gather 160 godmothers / godparents for our most vulnerable children in Kenya. Being a sponsor allows you to have direct contact with your godson through letters, and have access to the different school progress reports. On the other hand, thanks to the contribution of the godparents, we can deliver new uniforms, a daily food diet and emergency medical insurance.
On October 1, the first campaign that seeks to attract partners for our foundation was launched. Through the slogan # tumanosueducación, we seek to publicize this wonderful project and thus make the EducAfrica family grow even more. This campaign aims to help our Infrastructure Improvement and Educational Advisory programs in schools that we support in Africa.
Finally in Kenya
On June 19 of 2017 we shipped and installed in one of the schools in Kenya the "Mural of Dreams" helped painted by our sponsors in Chile. A mural that was created by the talented Chilean artist Payo Söchting.
We want to thank all the volunteers which invaluable and selfless support helped building EducAfrica and developing capacity building in the schools we work with.
