Kabete Rehab School Library Launch

Summer 2018

This summer, BSI Nairobi in partnership with Start a Librart (SAL) opened a brand new library at the Kabete Rehabilitation School. Kabete Rehab hosts a population of 78 students, each of whom are on a path toward a renewed life. During the launch program, the BSI team was able to interact with the Kabete rehab students and share lessons on the value of reading and education. Since the inaugural event, the school has instituted a library timetable to ensure that students may take full advantage of the resource newly afforded to them. School deputy H.T Mr. Gitonga expressed confidence that the library would serve as a staple of the school for many years to come.


BSI Moi & Tumaini Innovation Center for Jenga Vijana

June 2018

This past weekend the BSI Moi team joined the Tumaini Innovation Center for Jenga Vijana. The street community in Eldoret, as with many other places, is home to many talented youths who find themselves stuck in a bad situation. Jenga Vijana aimed to raise funds for recruiting 1000 street kids/ youths into the Tumaini community where they will have an opportunity to learn how to write and read as well as develop employable skills that will allow long-term sustainability. Aside from helping with fundraising, BSI Moi contributes to Tuamini through mentorship programs, delivering health talks and participating in workshops. To get involved, please contact us through the Facebook page or by email at beyondsciencesinitiative@gmail.com

KABETE Rehabilitation Center Mentorship Program

June 21st, 2017

KABETE Rehabilitation Centre is a government-run institution for boys in Kenya who are in conflict with the law in one way or another. Many reasons have led to the boys serving their terms at this institution i.e. Doing drugs, petty theft, running away from home because of abusive parents, unjust systems and the major one being: Truancy. These boys are between the ages of 12-17 years. The school was established with the intention of addressing the root of the problem while giving the boys an education with the hope of keeping them off the street. The school experiences several challenges including inadequate resources (ie. books) and insufficient staff. The BSI Nairobi hopes to establish a mentorship program at this institution this year in the month of August. We believe that we can inspire these boys to remember that education is liberating and going to college is actually cool.

If you are interested in participating in this program or providing a donation please contact Esther Anyango at estaranyango@gmail.com.
