We guarantee every high school student in our program a college education, if they qualify. So students stay in our program for 8+ years. Because of poverty and morning chores for day scholars it can take up to 5 years to complete high school. The fifth year of high school costs almost the same amount as four years. But those who repeat, all have gone on to College!
What is “harambee?”
Harambee is Swahili for working together. In Kenya this word refers to a gala fund raising event with food (often roasted goat), and soft drinks, speeches, song and dance.
Mulundi Village Harambees
Communities hold harambees to match funds from Books and Bricks.
The village has held harambees to:
- Complete unfinished classrooms at St. Mulumba’s Kwa Muema.
- Raise high school fees for girls in Mulundi to attend high school.
- Raise funds for college scholarships.
- Close the gap between government and parent fee payment at the schools.
