GOAL: $30,000

Why Support?

Your support will help expand Dorothy Schwartz Community Centre, a primary school located in a desperately poor slum in Nairobi, Kenya. For our students to graduate from DSCC we need to build 3 new classrooms to attain Junior Secondary School status.

Local residents will provide the labor for the construction, but the total cost for building supplies will be $30,000. Donations go a long way; for example $34 would buy 4 steel columns. 

How It Works

A very generous family has donated an initial $12,000 to kick off the construction project and pledged up to an additional $10,000 in a dollar for dollar matching grant until we meet our goal. Can you help us reach this match amount? Donate today to DOUBLE your impact!

Previous Impact

The photos below are from our 2019 construction project when we raised the funds to support the construction of new classrooms to meet government requirements to remain open as a school. Our current campaign will help the school attain Junior Secondary status and expand its impact on the children in need in Mukuru Slum, Nairobi, Kenya.
