Currently we are raising funds for Phase I of this new Music for the World school dedicated to the founder Sophie Wamunga. The new school will consist of two classrooms and a toilet, one for the girls and one for the boys.
The classrooms will hold 50 students each. There are currently 95 orphans at this school. We are in need of $45,000 for this project which also includes wooden chairs and tables for 100 students and their five teachers and helpers.
I met with a great architect while I was in Kenya concerning the building of this school and visited a similar building that his firm just completed on my recent trip. These classrooms were absolutely beautiful! I have included a photo of the borrowed site that they are currently using. The architect said it would take approximately a month and a half to build this school.
They are ready to start as soon as we can get the funds to them!
We have been working in Lukongo, Kenya which is a remote village nine hours West by car from Nairobi, the capitol of Kenya, for the past thirteen years by starting a school for aids orphans and their teachers. Initially we provided medical assistance as many were dying weekly from illnesses and starvation when we first met these orphans. We also began a feeding program where these orphans would get a hot meal daily when they came to school.
Sophie Wamunga, a passionate dwarf handicapped teacher from Lukongo, Kenya was the founder of the school. Sophie recently passed away in April 2016 from complications from maleria and a fall. Music For The World supported Sophie as she earned her degree in early childhood education with honors!
