Arise N Shine Community Academy is making plans to increase enrollment. Since its doors opened in 2007, the school has helped over 500 disadvantaged children from pre-k to 2nd grade, giving them hope for a brighter future. Today, the team on the ground is hoping to double their capacity and get more children out of the streets and into the classrooms. “We are all set to move forward and expand. There is no turning back”, says Mrs Menya, a director at the school. “We are looking to spread to Nyahera and Siaya in the coming years”. The new addition to the school include 3 classrooms, an office for staff and a dining area for the children.
There is a lot of excitement in the air, as dump trucks bring in the rocks and other raw materials. The strident sound of hammers pounding nails is unmistakable. Mrs Menya adds that she plans to start development programs at the school aimed at supporting the widows in the community. Neighbors, parents and caregivers stop by to wave and nod their support. Hope for the Child would like to give you the opportunity to help us continue to make a difference in this community. The time is now.
