The Ingrid Education Centre educates around 300 underprivileged children and orphans in the Matopeni slums of Nairobi, Kenya. The Ingrid Education Centre is an oasis in the middle of the rock quarry slum area, where poverty, hunger and illness are part of daily life. The school was founded by a local group of volunteer teachers, who saw the need to bring education to the local children, to improve their futures in a very harsh environment. The school now runs a kindergarten, and classes 1 to 8.

LiveGlobally supports the Ingrid Education Centre by

  • financing the ongoing construction & improvements of the school building

  • providing a Teachers Fund to ensure sustainable wages for the school's teachers 

  • growing the sustainability of the school through programs designed to create income (including sewing machines, beehives, and a microloan bank)

  • providing a safe and nourishing environment for the children (including food for lunches, clean drinking water, sanitary pads, computers and internet)
