Since 2007, SEED has operated a primary school in Kibera slums, Nairobi, Kenya. Kibera is the largest slum in eastern-Africa with over 1 million residents and underfunded public services. SEED Junior Academy (SJA) currently educates and feeds around 80 children in classes JK-three. The school administrator, Patrick Aouki, consistently demonstrates commitment and expertise in his operation of the school. Our three local teachers are paid fair salaries and arrive at work daily. With the recent addition of an upstairs dining hall, all of SJA’s students receive lunch daily and breakfast three times a week. Parents are engaged in income-generating activities such as jewelry making, sold online via our Etsy store (SEEDJewelryandCrafts), to support their children’s education.
