HELP US BUILD 

THE NEW HUMANE SCHOOL

In 2017 the Humane School was in urgent need of new bigger school buildings with permanent structures to improve the overcrowded classrooms and poor sanitary conditions. In order to save the school it was decided to build a new school at a new plot in the village of Sirende. Finalizing this project will require funding and we kindly ask you to support it. 

 
 

HOW ONE SCHOOL CAN IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR THE WHOLE SOCIETY 


Hear the Project Leader Anja Varis talk about her motivation and a concrete example of how the school can make a positive impact on everyone in the village. 

The movie is made by Föreningen Sofia. 


A WALK THROUGH SIRENDE


The school is located in the small village of Sirende outside the town of Kitale in northwestern Kenya. In the village, the majority live below the poverty line and many children do not have the opportunity for high-quality education.

Watch the video for a walk through Sirende! 

HUMANE SCHOOL NEEDS FUNDING

The Humane School provides so much more than just education. It provides community, security and food for children who might lack this in their everyday lives.  All school activities depends on financial ability related to various supports or donations.
