OASIS OF HOPE

Our project

Many of the world’s children live under disgraceful conditions.  According to the U.N. children’s convention all children are entitled to the most basic things, such as food. Clothes, schooling and care.

Our aim is to contribute to giving poor and orphaned children in Kenya the opportunity of education.  This we do by giving them food, care and teaching at the Oasis of Hope school every day.

The school has about 200 pupils from babyclass up to and including 9th form, with one class per level.  The school has eleven teachers and two cooks, who all make a tremendous effort in order to give the pupils and good and safe school day.  In spite of minimal wages they work hard every day in order to provide the pupils with food and teaching.  Many of the children look at the school as their home, and also spend a great part of the weekends at the school.  Here they meet other children to play with and there is always one or more teachers present.

Food for learning

No one can learn when the stomach is empty. Our school is offering two meals for the children every day.

Our supporters

In addition to regular donors we also have other sponsors.

No one can help all, but all can help some.
