From young people to young people
Our engagement goes far beyond our own community
In Kenya, over 1.7 million children still remain out of school. The majority are street children living in slums or in marginalised pastoralist communities.
Informal or alternative basic education is viewed as “second class” education and does not receive the recognition or acceptance required to be optimally effective. This problem creates a dangerous combination that frequently leads to drug abuse, early pregnancy, crime, and other at-risk behaviours.
We are proud to launch “£1 of future” an education project in Kenya that the main objective is the construction of a laboratory at St Pius Day Secondary School. Funds are being raised throughout various events developed by TLS Group, donations of our own clients by entering their monthly rent, and other voluntary contributions.
Our contribution to this project is only possible because of the support of our clients. We are liaising with Strathmore University, located in Madaraka Estate, from where we receive extremely valuable guidance on where to allocate our efforts.
There are various charities organisations involved, contributing to make sure that we succeed. For more information, visit our page at http://www.tlsgroup.eu/en/one-pound-of-future
