In Kenya; Fichua Somo – Kiswahili for ‘unearthing education’ – is an ongoing campaign that creates awareness about the physical and mental needs of students; and seeking to find solutions through partnerships and sponsorship from interested parties. Through Fichua Somo, we mobilize basic educational materials such as books, writing materials, shoes, backpacks, give scholarships, connect volunteer tutors with needy schools and students to offer capacity etc., for primary and secondary students. We also mobilize and give free sanitary towels and products to needy girls from low income households and communities; as well as teach them how to make reusable towels.
Through Fichua Somo Initiative, we continuously ask you to donate the above mentioned stuff, which we distribute to different students and schools all over the country. We have a database of schools we partner with, who call us when they have need.
If you want to be one of our partners, please contact us here. We also do volunteer placement for teaching students who want opportunities for teaching practice; or anyone who wants hands on experience in working with students, communities and churches. If you are there please hit us up here and we will be glad to organize the best option for you.
