The founders of Hello Pretty could not ignore the plight of vulnerable and destitute children in their rural home who to some extent are neglected and abandoned thus fail to get the vital basic education .We are a small education institution offering humanitarian care for the needs of the poverty stricken children in rural Kenya. This is where these children learn to know the value of a family in which they are cared for, loved and educated until such a time they will be able to take care of themselves and their own future families.
Children are the greatest country’s resource and represent hope for a better future, but deaths due prevalence of HIV/AIDS, extreme poverty, competition for the scarce resources, diseases, Political and family conflicts, drug abuse and addiction and lack of educational opportunities put these children at extreme risks for illiteracy, illness, hopelessness, abuse and meager resources accessible in the common definition of the poor child living in rural Kenya. Few opportunities exist, that allow them learn and grow to their full potential.
Although the Kenyan government offers free education for all children at primary school level, the children are still expected to pay school fees, buy their own school uniform [Without which they cannot attend school], provide their own food and in some cases there are not enough school desks and learning resources with children having class size of over 50 in a tiny room. This lack of opportunity results in perpetuation poverty cycle allowing them to neither contribute to their full capacity to the community nor be able to take advantage of all that their society and the World has to offer. It is in light of this predicament, that the Hello Pretty was founded to meet these needs of the ever increasing needs of these dear ones and give them the opportunity to live to their full potential and add value to humanity.
The primary learning is one course which will support students to grade 8 based on Kenyan curriculum. The program is demanding the fact that students need some basic needs to create a good learning environment, this include; desks, books and school uniform and above all classrooms. It’s in this spirit that we call fourth any contribution which will be of great significance.
The nursery caters for the small children who have reached school going age
For the program to run affectively we need support from well-wishers.
Currently we have volunteer teachers and support staff who also need support for their up keep.
Most parents spend most of their time in the farms. This makes the pupils idle at home. Hello Pretty provides an ample playground for the pupils, as they play we expose them to early childhood education, they are introduced to their first education experiences. Due to the poverty levels in the region, most families find it impossible to afford three meals a day. Our Centre tries to offer food to the children however difficult it is.
Hello Pretty is open to take care of vulnerable children whose parents and guardian are unable to keep at home due to lack of food and other basic essential needs.
The poverty level in rural Kenya is the highest in Kenya thus forces the single parents / guardians to abandon these children in search of casual farming jobs for their up keep.
This calls for sponsors to come on board to support these children, pay for their tuition, buy uniforms, help them get at least one meal per day during school hours, provide them with learning materials e.g. books and desks and other stationery.
The goal of this program is to provide career ‘Mentoring for prosperity” that can help the children from the Centre develop their skills, talents and understanding of different career fields.
The village is one of the poorest in western part of the country, and as a result, its residents face many challenges. This is particularly the case for school-age children, who often lack access to proper education facilities and mentorship opportunities.
In order to address the issues, the Hello Pretty program hosts mentorship sessions within the Centre. Most sessions are held on Saturday mornings and afternoons, and includes presentation from guest speakers.
Through encouraging students to pursue their various career ambitions and providing a positive mentorship experience, Hello Pretty strives to support the students and community as a whole.
