In Tunyo, World Vision is working to improve the quality of children's education. That includes making sure children have proper spaces to learn. 

When this early childhood education centre started, there were 16 children, one teacher and no classrooms. Everyone gathered to learn outdoors using trees for shade.

Last year World Vision worked with community members to build a proper school. Local people provided sand, concrete and water and helped with construction. World Vision supported the efforts with chairs and desks, learning materials and training for teachers in early literacy.

Help a child realize their full potential. Give the gift of education.

Since construction finished, enrolment has increased from 93 to 184 students. World Vision Kenya's National Director visits students at the new school. Photo: World Vision. Thank you for your support for children in Tunyo. Your generosity is making this progress possible!
