Our Work

Sustainability

eduKenya’s unique sustainability model includes the purchase of investment properties in Nairobi, the rental incomes of which are used to fund program operational costs. Once enough buildings are purchased to support the Kwa Watoto School and related programs, we will have the opportunity to launch new schools in other areas of the slum.

The goal is to eventually fully fund each of eduKenya’s schools and related programs with revenue earned from investment properties in order to avoid the pitfall of dependency commonly associated with international aid. We invest in properties in Mathare to support the local economy and provide improved housing for community members, most of whom previously lived in informal structures without running water or electricity.

We continue to seek investors who understand the importance of sustainably resourcing development programs and want to make a long-term impact for children and families in Mathare through the partial or total purchase of investment properties.
