We aim to empower & enrich children’s lives in Watamu Kenya through the provision of libraries and free access to books.
How we started
Watamu, on the east coast of Kenya, is a beautiful area with a wonderful community that makes it an idyllic tourist destination. Walk along the long white sands enjoying a cooling breeze, swim, snorkel in the warm Indian Ocean, watch whales and dolphins, visit the coral gardens and get to know the wonderful people; it all makes for an amazing unforgettable holiday experience.
But, although there is always a smile on their faces, the daily life of local Kenyans is a constant struggle against poverty.
Education is not free.
Most schools lack basic resources such as tables, chairs and books.
Exams are in English - their 3rd Language.
Ancillary education costs of uniforms, meals, shoes etc.must be found from an irregular income of less than £2 a day.
THE SOLUTION: Provide a FREE LIBRARY.
Access to Books, Resources and Literacy Support to help children read write and explore their natural talents.
