Hope for Kenya: Class Size
In the Kasemeni school district of rural Kenya, the average class size for grades K-8 is an issue that would leave any American school administrator in tears. In the village of Gandini, the average classroom is packed to capacity at about 80 students with kids sitting on the floor, sharing desks, and even standing. In this school, the third grade is the biggest, housing upwards of 120 students within the same walls of a room only 20’x24’. Each grade is only allowed to use one classroom, not necessarily by rule, but by the fact that they don’t have the resources to build anything else to accommodate the overflow. Through the Hope for Kenya fundraiser, the burden will be partially lifted from these people’s shoulders as the generous funds will go towards building a two-room classroom for these children.
