Three miles from the city center in Nairobi, Kenya, the Kibera slums sprawl over 1.5 square miles of muddy terrain.
The largest urban slum in all of Africa, population estimates for Kibera range from 250,000 to more than 1 million men, women, and children living in desperate poverty. Most residents lack access to basic services such as running water and electricity.
But, amidst these crowded and often dangerous surroundings, there is hope.
The Calvary Education School provides children in Kibera with a safe place to gain an education and helps build a better future for them and their families.
Mark Mohr’s relationship with the Calvary Education School goes back more than seven years and includes multiple trips with his family and his church to help support the school’s mission and its students.
This year, StudioNorth is making a donation to the Calvary Education School on behalf of our clients. This donation will be added to funds provided by Inspire 180 to help rebuild a dilapidated wing of the school and provide six new classrooms, a library, and a medical clinic.
We’d like to thank all of our clients who have made this gift possible.
