At Waymarks Education Centre the children get more than just education. They get food and help with uniform and other essentials. These are just a few of the children at the school. Without the school they would even less that they now have. Their stories are sadly all too common in the town.
These are 16 of the 176 children in the school. We also support children in three schools in Zimbabwe



5 years old ANN WANJIKO is a girl in Nursery and lives with her aunt at the slum. Both her parents died 3 years ago. The aunt is jobless and therefore not really able to support even Ann's basic needs.    

BRENDA NAFULA 6 is a girl in grade 2 at our school and lives with her ailing Mother. Her father died of Aids some years ago when she was only 2 years old. Her mother is jobless and can not really provide food, clothing etc for Brenda.

EVANS WEKESA 11, is a boy in grade 4 and lives with both his grandfather and grandmother at Soweto shanty opposite the slum. Their grass thatched semi permanent house is almost falling down.

HILLARY ONYANGO 5 is a boy in Nursery class and lives with his aunt at the slum. His both parents were killed during the post election violence in early 2008.

DICKSON WANYOIKE 10 is a boy in grade 4 . He lives with his Mother at the slum. His father died of Aids when Dickson was 5 years old. His mother's health is not good currently and she is not able to do any casual work to earn a living. 

 

KENNEDY NANGALAMA is 12 and in grade  4 and lives with both his parents at the slum. His parents are one of the poorest families at the slum. They do not have enough to eat or adequate shelter and in most cases KENNEDY and his parents spend the nights in the cold, hungry and without something to cover themselves with.

 

For many children there are days when the only food they get is what we provide at the school. some have no clothes other than their school uniform
