Kenya

SHGO partners with The Beverly School of Kenya to offer state-of-the-art education, social supports, and vocational training to this East African nation’s population of orphans and vulnerable children.

Seven Hills Global Outreach has developed a partnership with Abdi Lidonde; the founder of The Beverly School of Kenya. The partnership will support the school to serve over 400 K-12 students.

In Kenya, 1 in 3 children do not attend school and of the non attendees, 2 are girls. The student-teacher ratio is 40:1 nationally and in many poorer communities, over 80:1. In many classrooms 3 to as many as 7 children share textbooks while other supplies are unavailable. Despite this, Kenyans highly value education and typically make great sacrifices to try to pay school fees and purchase books and uniforms. When a family is unable to pay these costs, children cannot attend school. Further complicating these problems are an ever increasing number of orphans which today total over 12 million in Africa and over 900,000 just in Kenya.

Seven Hills Global Outreach has developed a partnership with Abdi Lidonde; the founder of The Beverly School of Kenya. The partnership will support the school to serve over 400 K-12 students. The Beverly School of Kenya is the first school of its kind that is purposefully initiated in a rural area to serve disadvantaged and marginalized (street) children in Kenya. Fifty percent of the student body will be orphans who will call the school “home.” A number will be afflicted with AIDS. Beverly School is not only about caring for disadvantaged and marginalized in Kenya; it is about helping students forge a better future for themselves and for their community.
