Our Education Programme aims at fighting retrogressive culture
Education is the key to success, SOMIRENEC’S Education program is designed to support vulnerable children from the slums of Nairobi County; (Kibera and Kawangware), and pastoralist communities from Marsabit County and West Pokot County to access basic education.
In Marsabit, the program has been achieved through the pastoralist education program (PEP). The education program seeks to transform and empower youths, Morans (warrior), girls and women in the community in fighting the retrogressive culture, lobby and advocate for more collaboration and involvement of various stakeholders in transforming community.
SOMIRENEC’s Education program is run under the UN SDG’s goal 4 (Quality Education for all). The program ensures that no child is left out. Under-enrollment and completion of schooling is a major challenge among children from poor families from the informal settlements of Kibera and Kawangware. The education program in the slums has transformed 368 lives of children from 3 beneficiary schools from the informal settlements of Kawangware; (St. Stephen Preparatory and Havard school), and Kibera; (St. Michael Nursery school).
