A Sense of Accomplishment for Excellence by their Own Hands
Our pilot program starts in Kawangware, and from there we hope to start similar projects in Muthare, Dandora, Huruma, and other slums in Nairobi. In the next five years we would like to start more projects in Nakuru, Eldoret, Kisumu and Mombasa, as well as creating links with others who would like to start El Sistema projects in Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania.
