Kilele Junior School

 Where we take children more personally

Kilele Junior Foundation, a registered local NGO in Kenya has been dream come true both for its directors and the residents of Komarock and Kayole because it continues to successfully run a primary school and prepare children for the future.

Many youths in the estate have for a long time engaged in drug abuse, crime, rape, HIV/AIDS spread and other social vices due to the acute economic imbalances paving way for high rates of unemployment and poverty levels. It is on the basis of this background that Kilele Junior foundation has found it necessary to engage and lift children and  up coming youth from the yoke of illiteracy idleness and poverty through its quality education.

Kilele Junior School about to start a fundraising campaign for the transport of a container full of donated school material

Kilele Junior School based in Nairobi keeps constantly growing. Thanks to the generous donation of sponsors the school was able to rent a new school building with several new class rooms. In a second step we are aiming at equipping the new class rooms and to aquire adequate teaching material to improve the quality of education. Thanks to the help of some volunteers, Kilele Junior School has been able secure a 40t container of school material, clothing, furniture and computers donated by Crossroads Shipment. While they will ship the container free of charge to Kenya, the transport of the container from the port of Mombasa to Nairobi as well as all charges related to it have to be covered by Kilele Junior School. According to the quotes that Kilele Junior School has received from the transport company, the costs for the transport as well as the charges at the port and eventually some duty charges will sum up at about 4000 Euro (5500 US Dollar).
