Successful social entrepreneurs
Even though the young people in our student companies lack personal encounters, being active with one another, visits from Kenya and project travelers who report from there due to the pandemic, they do not give up: They continue to contribute, earn money and thus enable our partners to realize sustainable projects in their traumatized communities. This time the following projects were on the agenda:
New, larger water tanks are needed at the Kanyrosha Self Help School and the Love School Junior to provide drinking water, to supply watering for the gardens and to sell it to the neighbours. At the Love School Senior it was necessary to remedy the damages from the fire and the following plunder. 28 teachers at our partner schools are wishing to participate in an Online-seminar hosted by the World Social Initiative Forums. At Evemon Education Centre, electricity is supposed to be transmitted to all of the classrooms. And last but not least we have to mention the final payment for the IT-trainingcenter at the Kangemi Youth Centre which we started in cooperation with NairoBits. Since the number of participants in the first course was too little to cover up all the running costs we also need to provide the salary for the trainers during the first 3 months, until the second course, which usually has more participants, will start.
The director of our institute, Alexander Piecha, introduced the projects to all the CEOs of our student companies, they discussed with their colleagues and made decisions based on that: The students from Prien (cover picture) have donated 1500 € altogether, 500 € of those are supposed to be used as savings for the Kangemi Youth Centre (presumably to build appartments there), 200 € are designated for the water tank at the Love School and 700 € for our NairoBits project.
