We are creative graphic designers with lots of skills and experience working with handcrafts, graphics, wall art, cloth design and printing e.t.c Nairobi city has a high number of street kids, most of them are very bright but luck Education. Most of the run away from the foster homes to look for their daily bread on the street independently. Most of them are aged 5 to 15 yrs old. We thought to ourselves, if ONLY we had the capability of helping in a better way education wise through sharing our skills then why not. Graphic design and craftsmanship are skills that can be learned and mastered. And as we all know there are challenges in everything so we ended up thinking of online funding. With the passion that we have for creativity, we would like to be able to share the skills to the needy kids through practical lessons and theories in class. To do this we need good computers for the graphic work, classrooms, hostels, Drawing pads, supportive staff, workshops, graphic design software and other useful equipment we can get our hands on. For the financial breakdown, we summarize it as seen below.
