"Spring of Hope"
A Self-Sustaining Girls' Secondary School
We aim to establish a secondary school for girls from the surrounding community as well as those rescued from early marriage and sex trafficking. The school will provide a safe living and learning environment. The skills-based curriculum will enable the students to become employable, start their own business, or continue to post-secondary school if desired. Our mission is to empower these young women to achieve their dreams and become the best versions of themselves.
Ololii village predominantly consists of Maasai and Kalenjin people. Approximately 4,000 people live in the village. The community, as a whole, greatly values education. We are grateful for their support from the beginning. Their excitement for this school may rival our own.
Our new school will be located in the beautiful village of Ololii, which is part of Narok-West county in Kenya. Due to generous donations, we were able to purchase 12 acres of land. A hydro-geographical survey revealed an abundant water source in the underground aquifer. There are currently five primary schools within 3 kilometers but no nearby secondary schools.
We are committed creating a self-sustaining school. The twelve acres of land will allow for multiple revenue generating projects which will support the school and allow each girl to receive a partial or full-ride scholarship. The potential projects include: growing various crops, establishing a poultry farm, bee-keeping, and raising livestock.
We are also committed to supporting the local economy throughout the construction by purchasing local materials and hiring local laborers to build the structures. Once the school is operational, it will be run by a local headmaster and school board. The students will be taught by local teachers.
