From the beginning of its activity in 1999, Convivium Africa has always worked in order to carry out projects in areas of high social impact, in very difficult realities, with special attention to devoloping Countries.

Project Kibera - Kenya


Convivium Africa’s sensibility for these countries heavy social problems focused its attention on a “twin program”  with the Kibera Primary School of Nairobi.
It was born with the aim of creating a cooperation between guys football teams , offering them  soccer uniforms and sportive implements; in July 2006, during a trip to Kenya, we understood that our action should have been deeper, in order to help these 2,500 children and their families.


THAT IS WHY WE MADE UP OUR MINDS TO FOLLOW THESE GREEDY OBJECTS:

  1. Building of a cooking centre for 2,500 children to allow the  preparation of meals under the respect of the hygienic rules;
  2. Building of bathrooms and lavatories for 2,500 children. At present, the students have no possibility to wash themselves in their huts, and the school is the only place where they can use toilets and  clean water; but the current structures are too old and badly equipped.

AND OTHERS, NOT LESS IMPORTANT BUT MORE EASY TO OBTAIN:

  1. Scholarships for 1 year for the Secondary School: if you let these guys  keep on studying, you avoid them to take the way of robbery, drugs and prostitution.  Annual cost per person: euros 500
  2. Buying complete school uniforms, including shoes:  cost per person euros 40,00.
