To provide free education for all students at the Kwasha Molya Community School including a school lunch program that is designed to promote good health habits and enhance each student’s ability to learn.
Children in the area had no opportunity for an education before the creation of the school given the scarcity of free schools available for the growing population.
Kwasha offers a quality gender equitable education, thus giving girls a chance for a better life. Educated girls marry later, have fewer, healthier children, and have more opportunities to contribute to the financial well being of the family. Girls who do not have the benefit of education are at risk to be married very young or sent to work as early as age 14.
The school lunch program offers well balanced meals for the children, utilizing some of the yields from Kwasha’s farm, thus promoting good nutrition and improving health.
Education benefits the entire family and community. Parents involvement in the sustainability of the school fosters awareness of the importance of education. The school has empowered the community through family involvement as PTA members, volunteer cooks and workers in the school garden. The parents made the 8000 bricks used in the construction of the school building.
