More about Ushirika School

Ushirika School is located in the Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya and is a longtime partner of One Girl Can. Due to the global pandemic, many schools in Kenya have been closed since March and they will remain closed until 2021 to ensure the safety of students and communities.

As a response to the school closures, Ushirika School founder, David Kitavi started a program to continue mentoring and hosting 54 girls, including 7 girls who don't attend Ushirika School but live in the neighbourhood.

The program furthers the goal-setting workshops initiated by One Girl Can and also provides education about COVID-19. Students are learning more about the virus, how to stay safe, how to cope with the social and emotional effects, and more.

Some topics covered include:

  • Coping with the emotional and social effects of COVID-19
  • Participation in community service learning
  • Digital Literacy
  • Self-expression through various mediums such as presentations, poetry, and acting
  • Mentorship

One Girl Can remains committed to helping girls cultivate innovative minds and continue to encourage them to pursue their dreams. Please donate today to help us finish rebuilding Ushirika and continue to support the needs of our girls.
