Books for Kenya


Where will the books we donate go?To school children and schools in the Mathare Valley slum of Nairobi, Kenya

What is the Mathare Valley Slum?The Mathare Valley is one of the oldest and worst slum areas in Nairobi and the degree of poverty there is unimaginable. Approximately 600,000 people live in an area of three square miles.

What are the slums like?  

People live in 6’ x 8’ shanties made of old tin and mud.  There are no beds, no electricity and no running water.  People sleep on pieces of cardboard on the dirt floors of their shanties.

  • Most live on an income of less than a dollar per day.
  • Common health problems for children in Mathare include dysentery, malnutrition, malaria, typhoid, cholera, infections, tetanus, and polio.
  • It is common for a child or teen, some as young as 8 or 9 years old, to be left to care for younger siblings, since both parents have died.
  • There are an estimated 70,000 children in the Mathare Valley, with only 3-4 schools to educate them. Many children do not attend school.

Who will take the books?

A team of over 30 people from Pathway Church including a Goddard student, an Apollo staff member and several Goddard parents  will travel to Kenya on October 6, 2016 to deliver books to children who have never owned a book of their own.
