4. Through mutual visits, we build long-term partnerships between schools in Europe and the community in Kenya
On the one hand, this gives the slum dwellers the opportunity to return the favor. They can give something back to the students by welcoming them into their homes. On the other hand, the experience significantly changes the students’ view on the world. “The circumstances in a slum must be seen in order to understand them,” wrote one of the students after his visit to Kenya.
At the same time, it is also important to us that the partnerships we build up remain long-term. We try to support this with mutual visits. Not only the students travel to Kenya, but also the principals from there regularly visit the partner schools in Germany.
