The school garden of St Teresa’s Primary Girls School in Mathare is a Foundation Move-Up idea. The school director introduced the greenhouse. The greens are meant for the poorest Girls of the school. Next step: irrigation close to the roots. The school has seedling bags as well.
Reuben from Mathare Valley has the privilege to cultivate greens in seedling bags on a piece of waste land.
In January 2015 the wooden part of the orphanage Good Samaritan (Mathare Valley) burnt down. An activity in The Netherlands generated money to buy new beds, made by a lokal company.
Reuben also started a clean up project is his direct neighbourhood. The adults show the assisting children how to do this. The Young ones are involved and know how important it is to live in a clean area. Next development: selection of different materials for recycling. Now they no longer have to leave their waste in the Mathare River, which thus will no more be polluted.
Somewhere else an initiator presents his business plan. (But often the ideals in the plans are set too high)
This teacher started her own kindergarten, because the very young children can not yet attend a primary school. When the young ones leave her school they are performing very well at the primary school. With low budget she bought perfect materials for lessons and the fantastic guiding materials on the wall are made by herself.
Douglas fulfilled his business plan. His small library is filled with suitable books. Every week he organises many different activities for all ages. He knows about and works with different levels of literacy.
