St John's School

St Johns School is located in the heart of the Kibera slum (Kenya) - largest slum in Africa. It's roughly the size of NY Central Park and is home to almost 1 million people. St. John's primary school was started by Josiah Munyutu in 2002, with the aim of helping the orphans, street children, and the poor. It now has over 400 students.

Breaking the cycle of poverty through education

We are constantly trying to improve the school by building new and upgraded classrooms, providing essential learning resources and paying teachers salaries. 

Here are some of our upcoming projects:​
- Build and fit out a computer lab. 
- Increase the teachers salaries 
- Improved school feeding program. 


School feeding program

Most of Kibera slum residents live in extreme poverty, earning less than $1.00 per day. Unemployment rates are high. A lot of the students go to school hungry because they can't afford food. Learning on an empty stomach is really difficult, that's why we have introduced our school feeding program in partnership with Ololo Lodge and Farm. Giving every student a meal so they have fuel to learn.
