PERMANENT PHYSICAL SPACE
Jambo Jipya has been renting land for the past 10 years. The goal for 2014-2015 is to purchase the land the school is currently on, and ideally the adjacent property as well.
ALTERNATIVE EDUCATION OPTIONS
In Kenya, high school is not a requirement by any means. For many students, it makes more sense to learn trades they can pursue in the job market. A goal is to team students up with apprenticeships or trade schools of their choosing.
Jambo Jipya is in desperate need of capital improvement. Once the property is purchased, the goal for the next few years is to build a nice two-story school, complete with a well for fresh drinking water and a children’s home for the orphans.
A long term goal of Jambo Jipya it to develop a space for community members to spend time learning. A public library, computer learning center, trade workshops, health seminars, and adult evening classes are all ideas for this community space.
