Welcome to the EFYE Education Centre!

The EFYE Education Centre is the core of our non-profit organization EFYE (Eagle’s Fountain Youth Empowerment). As a pre-primary and primary school, it offers a safe haven with a future prospect to 80 children in the slum of Mathare, Nairobi. Through education, we aim to empower children and young adolescents to sustainably build a better future for themselves and their environment by reducing inequities. Our aim is for the children to leave school with a strengthened personality and physical health, knowing how to approach their further life with confidence and optimism. For this, education is fundamental and free of charge for all children here at the EFYE Education Centre.

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.
