Working from the back rooms of a local church, and with scant resources, the teachers at the Judah Education Centre provide quality education to 54 children from one of the poorest districts in Nairobi, Kenya. Despite their poverty, the students, including two special needs children, work hard and come to class prepared for the day’s work.

Their dedicated teachers, who hail from similar backgrounds, earn less than $75 per month.

African Childrens Haven supports the Centre by helping to pay teacher salaries and by providing books and supplies, as well as food for the school’s all-important feeding program.
