Gitathuru

Overview:

Our Gitathuru center was launched in September 2011 to educate the growing number of school-aged children in the area. Previously, only crowded, local schools existed that provided a substandard education. The population of the community is approximately 30,000 people. Since the need is great, the growth of the center has been limited only by the lack of adequate space to accommodate additional students. Our goal is to construct a permanent facility to educate even more children. We also anticipate implementing skills training and additional community outreach programs.
