Zawadi Community Center

Rukia Suleiman, the founder of Little Shining Stars nursery school and Zawadi tailoring college has always worked hard to get things done. She is committed to work in her community and to challenge problems. In 2008 she has built, with help from Wanawa and a volunteer, her own nursery school and tailoring college. In the coming years the nursery school will grow into a complete primary school. Rukia wants to give the children from poor families a chance to receive better education than they usually get. In a competitive schools system like the Kenyan school system for children from poor backgrounds and rural areas it is usually very difficult to perform well in exams. The Little Shining Stars nursery schools aims to tackle this problem.

Zawadi tailoring college helps girls and young women to get skills to make them economic independent. Girls and young women who are economic independent are better able to make decisions that will benefit their and their families’ circumstances and health.
Both projects have just started and still a lot needs to be done.
Are you enthusiastic? Do you have skills and/or ideas to help Rukia and her staff to develop the nursery school and the tailoring college you’re welcome!

Testimonials

Jethro Arts Everything was great and arranged perfectly and professionally. The contact by mail before we travelled to Kenya was clear and easy. The pick up from the airport was without any problems. The introduction day in Kilifi was great as well. Still thanks to Everlyn and the student who has learned us (a couple of words) Swahili. Special thanks to Cocky for her commitment and everything she has done for us. We like to do voluntary work with Kenya Xperience! again.
Jurriaan Wesselink Ik (heb) veel gezien, gedaan en, onbewust, veel geleerd. Het was echt top en ik weet niet hoe ik kan zeggen hoe ik de organisatie kan bedanken, zonder deze  organisatie was het niet zo gelukt! Echt top. Dit nemen ze me nooit meer af.
Elize van Dalsen My experience with Kenya Xperience! could not have been better.
