Education


Proverbs 16:16 says that having wisdom and understanding is better than having silver or gold. Nice and expensive items can be enjoyable, but there are very few things in life that can never be taken away, will never go out of style, and that truly make you a better person. An education is one of those things. Education is more valuable than material things. At Heart to Heart, we hold education dear for in education one is given a variety of opportunities. This why we have aspired to bring education to most of the children that we are working with. We support and provide both full and partial sponsorships ranging from primary level to tertiary level. Our objective is to walk with the children from the primary level up to until where they can be absorbed into the country͛s job market or have skills for self-job creation.


OVERCROWDED AND UNDER-RESOURCED SCHOOLS...
In Kenya, the government implemented the free primary education in 2003 but it did not provide sufficient funds for public primary schools to implement it fully. With improved life expectancy and the increased birth rate especially in the slums, public schools tend to be overcrowded and/or under-resourced in terms of staffing thus making quality education a challenge. Many of the children that we work with and support are in Kibera and Kawangware slums. In Kibera, most of our children are at Karama School though many are also in the surrounding community schools while in Kawangware they are in Prince of Peace School and Lutheran school Kawangware and others in the surrounding community schools. We also have children in Kariobangi slums, satellite and the Maasai region (rescued girls from early childhood marriage and female genital mutilation) among other areas. Other primary schools that we collaborate with are Jagiet Academy and KEDS Care, these are schools that have recorded a high academic performance in the National Examinations.


SPONSORING CHILDREN ALL OVER THE COUNTRY...
We have children in high schools spread all over the country. We try to have as many of our children especially those in high schools to join a boarding school for them to have full concentration while at school. With the increasing boarding fees and limited chances to join high school, it is quite a challenge for us but we still thank God that through partnership support we are enrolling a good number into high schools, increasing the number.

Our desire is to walk with these children up to the possible desired end to allow for job market or job creation. With the highly demand job market, we walk with our children to university, colleges and other tertiary institutions. We aspire for the young adults to achieve to the best of their dreams by getting the necessary skills and knowledge required to not only be employable but also be employers. A great number of our children have made it to universities, we enrolled others into technical colleges and some get chances to be trained in a profession of their choice.
