Volunteer with Miwani Primary School. It is situated in Miwani village, Ganda location in Malindi Constituency, north coast. It is a community school run by Maziwani Primary School with the full support of both the community, the local government and local and international volunteers. Miwani has 158 pupils with a team of 9 teachers who work under very difficult and appalling situation in order to educate these kids. The village has a population of about 1000 people respectively. The school was established in 2011 following the need to start another school given that the population had increased and the other public schools were a distance away. As it were, a few structures were set up with the help of local government and the school began running.
The school is in the heart of the village and enjoys serenity and tranquility of nature. However, most community members lack education thus is faced with a lot of economic hardships and poverty as a result. Therefore, the support extended to the school remains minimal considering the life challenges that they undergo. In order to seal this gap, Mafanikio Community Based Organization has partnered with the school, local government and the county government in order to provide intervention measures to improve the school infrastructure, provision of learning instructional materials, international volunteer services and school feeding program as a way of providing a conducive learning environment.
The project has short and long term goals that shall ensure that it stands on its own after a span of two years. The goals include;
The government has pledged to construct two classrooms in aid of school development. As a way of supporting the school, the local government together with other stakeholders shall organize for a fundraising for another classroom in December 2021.
