Built by SEED in 2007, SEED Junior Academy (SJA) has been providing education and meals to over 100 low-income students annually in classes Jk to grade 4.
Located in Kibera, the largest slum in eastern Africa, SJA is operated in partnership with a highly experienced administrator, Patrick Aouki, as well as four dedicated local teachers.
All SJA students receive daily breakfast and lunch meals they may otherwise not receive at home. Parents are engaged in income-generating activities to support the students’ education.
SJA is currently undergoing reconstruction of it’s foundation and walls, necessary to maintain the school’s structural integrity and longevity, as well as adding a third floor to the school in order to include grades 5 & 6. Started in November 2019, we have thus far invested approx. $60,000 CAD towards this project and require around $40,000 CAD more to complete it. We hope to have this work completed by December 2021. Donations are always welcome!
