20th October is Mashujaa Day, a day to celebrate our Kenyan Heroes.
The team here at NAT have recently been connected to the Waithaka Library, just down the road from our office, in Dagoretti Karen. It’s a fantastic project run by a dedicated and energetic team of young men and women.
Desks, textbooks, novels and learning materials are all provided to allow children to continue their studies after school hours. Many of these homes often have no access to electricity and do not provide a safe and quite place for the children to learn. The library is a safe space for the children to take refuge from the world.
Donations to the library help over 30,000 children from 12 public schools in the surrounding areas to study.
These volunteers dedicate thousands of man hours to help these eager children and ensure they get the best out of their time at the library and their education.
Today, they are our Heroes.
