Welcome to the EFYE Education Centre!

The EFYE Education Center is the heart of our non-profit organization EFYE (Eagle’s Fountain Youth Empowerment). As a preschool and elementary school, it offers 59 children in the Mathare slum, Nairobi, a place of refuge with future prospects. From here we try together through educational work to enable children and young people to sustainably build a better future for themselves and their environment and to resolve inequalities. We want the children to emerge from school strengthened in their personality as well as physically healthy and to know how they can approach their future life confidently and confidently. Education is essential for this and here at the EFYE Education Center it is free for all children.

Education

The foundation of our work is education. But education does not only mean transmitting subject-specific knowledge. Through collaborative learning and interacting, the children also develop the ability to think and interact autonomously in interconnected social and cultural contexts. Our teachers accompany the children and adolescents throughout the course of their personal development and support them to find and follow their own path.

Security and Affection

The EFYE Education Centre is also a place of security and affection. Some of the children and adolescents experience what it means to be there for one another and to support each other for the first time in their life. The children are friends who laugh and play together. Our teachers are amazing reference persons, looking after the children in a competent, caring manner, giving them a feeling of security and protection.

Health and Nutrition

Besides mental strength we also promote the children’s physical health. Daily warm meals prepared by our cook Jane, weekly servings of fruits as well as essential hygiene measures like washing hands and cleaning the rooms are integral parts of everyday school life at EFYE Education Centre. In this way, the children and adolescents develop and increase their health awareness which is especially important in the environment of informal settlements.
