SEED Junior Academy

Since 2007, SEED has operated a primary school in Nairobi in partnership with Patrick Aouki, the school’s administrator. SEED Junior Academy (SJA) educates and feeds around 80 children annually in classes JK-4.  The school is located in Kibera, the largest slum in eastern-Africa with over 1 million residents and underfunded public services.  Patrick Aouki consistently demonstrates commitment and expertise in his operation of the school.  His fundraising efforts in Kenya and abroad can be supported through the SEED Foundation.  Our four 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 to support their children’s education.
