There are only 6 state schools for 80,000 children in the Kangemi / Kawangware slum of Nairobi. 113 community schools save many of these children from a fateful fate. Community schools are financed by parents contributions and fight for their existence every day.
In 2005 Irmgard Wutte went to one of them, the Kangemi Youth School, and followed the urgent request of all teachers “Do not forget us”. Since then she has been attending school regularly.
In 2012, a school partnership began with the first Nyendo school in Prien am Chiemsee, Bavaria, which has expanded over the years into a partnership with 14 slum schools – the CIFEFA schools.
