Full Description:Mafanikio Organization supports education in Kenya through sponsoring bright but needy students through high school, organizing volunteer placements in marginalized schools that are understaffed and participate in community development
Additional Info:Our work entails working with both primary and secondary schools mainly in the semi arid areas as well as other areas. The main emphasis is to ensure that children are equipped with knowledge through formal and informal education. This can be realized through supporting the school teaching staff and providing a conducive area for learning.
On the other hand, the exposure through international volunteers enlightens and broadens their mind thus motivating them to do their best.
Volunteers live within the community with a host family and get an opportunity of interacting with the local culture and third world development challenges.
At the end of it all, both the community and the volunteers gain. The former gains through education, exposure, communal work, tangibles and intangibles while the later gains through the interaction, cultural understanding, experimental learning and above an opportunity to come into contact with first hand experience in Africa.
