Goal summary

Build a creative center for 60 children in Gacharage, Kenya. This centre will provide fun and creative extracurricular activities for children whose parents are not able to engage with them after school and during the summer holidays due to their work schedules.

Project summary

This creative resource centre is needed in order to expose the children to new ideas and opportunities, and have a fun way of learning. Providing them with interesting material outside the classroom will pique their curiosity and make them more confident. Parents are also given a sense of comfort knowing their children have a safe environment to go to when they are out of school, keeping them off the streets and out of trouble. Furthermore, the creative centre will also offer local employment opportunities for some of the young people in the village.
