EDUCATION AT SCHOOL
Simba for Kids works in partnership with public schools in and around the Iten region. The lack of infrastructure (desks, toilets, classrooms) and school materials (theory and exercise books) affects all schools.
By contacting the directors and teachers of the different schools, Simba for Kids identified the main needs so that children can have better learning conditions.
The construction of a new classroom in the new school "Kaptel Primary School School" was a highlight for the association.
This school is located in a village a few kilometres from Iten. Many large families live there. This project benefits in particular nursery and primary school student who could not walk to school, which was too far away. The project started in 2017 with the construction of 3 temporary classrooms.
In December 2019 Simba for Kids and the community celebrated the inauguration of the new permanent classroom.
Budget: 7,500 chf
In order to improve hygiene as well as to give some privacy to the older children, Simba for Kids built a block of 6 additional toilets for the girls of Kapsio Primary School and 4 toilets for the pupils of Kaptel Primary School.
Budget: 2,500 Chf
CONSTRUCTION OF A WELL
Simba for Kids built a well at Kapsio Primary School to allow students to have water available to hydrate themselves and wash their hands. Before the construction of the well, students had to go to the river, which is several hundred meters away.
Budget: 1000 Chf
UNIFORMS AND SCHOOL FEES
Simba for Kids funds uniforms and school fees for children.
90 chf school fees for one year (midday meal + exam fees) for primary school
150chf for secondary school
Uniform: 30 chf
Most schools are in need of school materials. Teachers do not always have enough school books and students sometimes must share a book at up to five.
Simba for Kids has donated hundreds of school books across the region and students improvements were immediately noticed in terms of academic performance.
Budget for school books for a class of 30 students: 150 CHF
Children from poor families, who cannot afford the canteen fees, often do not eat lunch.
Simba For kids ensures that all children can eat their fill.
Budget: 90 Chf / year / child
Thanks to the energy of a few volunteers, we were able to collect many books in English and board games. Thanks everyone!
With the construction of our library still pending, the Kapsio school is lending the association a small space in a classroom.
If you have books in English (0-18 years), think of the children! firstname.lastname@example.org .
Simba for Kids funded and supervised the construction of two playgrounds in the schools of Iten Primary School and Kaptel Primary School. Many children discover swings, slides and seesaws for the first time.
Swings and slide: 800 Chf
Scale: 200 Chf
Simba for Kids has brought many desks to different schools. Students in certain classes sometimes have to sit at up to three per desk.
Budget: 20 Chf / desk
Simba for Kids sometimes organises small parties for students, allowing them to meet, laugh and share.
On these occasions, the association rewards the best students and the best athletes.
