Rural, Community, School Projects, Philanthropic aid, Educational

Project Summary

A local Charity in Kenya working with children and youth in rural communities of Gilgil and Kericho west sub counties reaching rural 15 primary schools with a population of approx. 7,935 children and 206 teachers directly and approx. 5,234 parents indirectly to promote social and ethical values. We provide books to deprived school children in rural Kenya and to use the gift to promote social and ethical values in an environment where behavioural role models are lacking.

Project Description

We provide books to deprived school children in poor rural areas and to use the gift to promote social and ethical values in an environment where behavioural role models are lacking, doing this through recognition, awards and prizes for specific values exhibited. These children live in communities where good role models are few or non-existent. Regrettably, greed, dishonesty and selfishness are more often perceived as means of achievement! The project derives from the recognition that many children in the rural and urban areas have restricted access to books. Hardly does one find a child that has a book to call its own. Even among educated Kenyans the habit of book reading barely exists so gaining knowledge after education ceases. Acquiring the reading habit will encourage these children to continue educating themselves after schooling. Children are issued well researched books which help instil values important to their future as useful members of society. Our goal is to change the mind-set of a generation of young people so that high moral values are seen as a way to success in life. Our Vision A generation that appreciates high values for personal and social development Our Mission To inspire teachers and children to be role models and mentors of today’s youth using peer education, books & training as tools that embrace selflessness, accountability and integrity. And cultivate the values of education, technology and environment in imparting positive life skills. Our Objective  To equip young people with life skills that is necessary for their personal development.  To capacity build teachers in the target schools so they are able to mentor and support young people with skills that are important to their future as useful members of society.  To provide Books that enhances high moral values to promote social and ethical philosophies and encourage the reading habit for youth to continue educating themselves after schooling.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

pri_teacher

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
