Education is a central value in the Kids of Africa concept. Wherever possible and where it makes sense, we like to send the children in our protection to external schools. This enables us to promote other schools and strengthen the independence of the children in our protection. Where this is not possible, however, we are also ready to pitch in.
This is why, in 2013, we built a primary school called the Kids Pioneers School on our land, with space for up to 400 pupils. In 2015, another school was begun on Nkosi Island – a very isolated community of fishermen on an island in the middle of Lake Victoria, in a remote place where they have few exchanges with other communities in the surrounding area. In 2016, another school project in the far-flung northern region was started.
