Milestones Learning Center – Mukuru
Milestones Learning Center – Mukuru is a community-based organization in Mukuru Kayaba, one of Nairobi’s largest slum areas, that is comprised of people living below the poverty line.
The team leader and founder of Milestones, Selvine Nyabuti, is very passionate about education and the general well-being of children, especially those who have limited opportunities. The organization was started to provide underprivileged children with quality education at a foundational level through the use of technology (e-learning) and social skills training in subjects like art and music.
The project’s goal is to help children who can’t afford private tutoring to learn the use of computers and other social skills. Milestones Learning Center – Mukuru will also focus on the older children by offering them a platform to express themselves, talk about their challenges, and teach them about the dangers of HIV/AIDS, the consequences of premarital sex, and how to cope with societal pressures.
Through TPP’s grant, two classes for the children will be constructed.
