    3 interns per school


    April December 2013

    (6 weeks minimum)

    This project is based in primary several schools located in the slum areas of Nairobi. These schools provide education

    for under privileged children who live in the slums. The children are aged between 3 and 15 years old. The main aim

    is to improve and develop the schools so that they can attain sustainability in their everyday activities such as teach-

    ing both the children and teachers, having a permanent feeding program, getting a library to create a reading culture

    in the children, having constant supply of teachers even if it is on volunteer basis through the Kuleana Initiative.

    The project is partly about the intern teaching the children on various subjects such as mathematics, English, science

    among others. The other part of the project is based on working on another project based on the schools needs. The

    project is of the interns choosing and guided by the lists of goals the school has written down with AIESEC such that

    the interns are working on something that leads the school to one step closer to attaining the Kuleana values of sus-

    tainability and empowerment of the schools internal and external environment. The schools under the program in-



    The schools are all located in Nairobi slums of Mathare, Kibera and Mukuru.

    The interns do not live in the slums.
