• A Dream Built Out Of Tin.

    In August 2008, Alan Coyne moved to Kenya to volunteer with a local charity (MEWA Hospital). He met two wonderful Kenyans, Fred Mulama and Miriam Ossoso. They were, together with Sarah Baert, volunteering their own time and money to help the poorest kids in the area.

    The local children were wandering the streets all day, often in poor health and malnourished. The slum was really unsafe, crime was high and many people who travel from the countryside in the hope of a job end up living in tin shacks with very little prospect of any work in the city. These realities prompted the four of them to start helping these kids and the program took off.

    Take a look and enjoy!

  • Do not train children to learn by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.

    2017, Dreaming About a Secondary School

    Just because, they deserve it!

    When given a chance, children are eager to learn and they do it very fast. Seeing their improvement inspires us every day and gives us the strength to keep going and continue fighting for a better future. The project is still ongoing and we are constantly looking for new donations to improve our school.

    We are currently working on raising 20,000 euros to buy an extra piece of land next to our current primary school and build there the secondary school.

    Our Medical Project

    When education and food is not quite enough

    Life is full of small and big boo boos from untreated medical problems (e.g. infected wounds/cuts, dog bites, broken bones) to HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. Often, their families don't have the resources to treat them correctly so we started providing emergency medical care.

     

    As costs grew higher, we decided to offer emergency medical assistance after one of our most serious cases happened. Kalimbo, one of our students, developed a skin infection that was neglected and ended up infecting his lung and causing tuberculosis.

     

    After this traumatic experience we could not risk putting our children's life in danger any more. Our medical project was born.
