Work has begun on the latest project at Future Stars – to convert the large hall into 3 classrooms for the younger children.
The partitions are designed to be moveable to ensure that the Centre retains a large meeting space and an area for the residential children to come together and play in the evenings.
Labour was found locally, within Kibera. This provides employment (and wages) to those who need it most. In this way, we not only achieve our aims for Future Stars, but also help the wider community of the slum.
The plans have been drawn, the frameworks constructed, the panels installed, and the bolts for the doors fitted.
When complete, we will have 3 separate classrooms for the early classes:
- Baby Class
This will separate the younger children from the rest of the school, allowing them space to play and for the little ones to nap in the afternoon. The classrooms will be equipped specifically for their needs, giving our precious youngsters the best start possible to their education and development.
The project will be completed during the holiday period and be functional in time for the new school year to begin in January.
