Our milestones so far – how we grow everyday

Das EFYE Education Centre ist noch keine zwei Jahre alt und dennoch ist bereits so viel passiert – nicht zuletzt aufgrund der großartigen Unterstützungsleistungen, welche wir von nah und fern erhalten haben. Wir freuen uns auf weitere Entwicklungen und darauf, gemeinsam zu wachsen. Hier ein Einblick in unsere letzten Jahre und Monate:

January / 2020

Expansion of the EFYE Education Centre

Since the beginning of 2020, we have the opportunity to take in more children. In the course of the year, the EFYE Education Centre will grow up to about 80 children with two additional teachers. Accordingly, additional furniture and school material is being purchased.

June / 2019

Logo and school uniforms

Having settled in day-to-day school life with 50 children, we found time for designing some details of our school. We created a school logo, painted the outside fence in our EFYE colours, designed a banner for the school and had a school uniform made for every child. Now, the children do not just feel like a school community internally but can also be recognized as such externally. 

 

May / 2019

Moving into the new school premises

In May 2019, we finally moved into the newly renovated school, together with the amazing teachers we had recruited and the newly purchased school materials.

April / 2019 

Renovation and set up

Nach einer kurzen Planungsphase begannen wir, nach passenden Räumlichkeiten für das EFYE Education Centre zu suchen und wurden am Rand des Slums Mathare in einem evangelischen Gemeindehaus fündig. Wir mussten das gesamte Gebäude renovieren und statteten die einzelnen Räume anschließend mit Schulmöbeln aus.

November / 2018

Foundation of the EFYE Education Centre

Since the end of 2018, the EFYE Education Centre is registered as a government-accredited pre-primary and primary school. We started with around 35 pupils, together with the desire for equal educational opportunity for all children.
