Happy Promotion Centre
Who We Are
Happy Promotion Centre (HPC) is a non-formal school that started in the year 2010 with seven children. HPC is situated in Mukuru Kwa Njenga informal settlement, off industrial area, along the Nairobi- Mombasa Railway line. The school started as a not for profit centre and it is registered as a Community Based Organization (C.B.O).
I was touched by the challenges the kids were facing and took the initial step of renting a single room that belongs to the settlement security vigilante group popularly referred to as Nyumba-Kumi. We later on purchased desks and bought some text books, whilst others were borrowed or donated by well-wishers so that the school would begin operating.
We provide education to children who cannot afford it
We create an environment that fosters quality child-care
Because one cannot learn on an empty stomach
Fun and games bring joy and complement the learning process
- After the school was started there has been a lot of changes, parents created a lot of interest so they started bringing their children whereby the number increased to 50 at this point intake was halted due to lack of adequate space.
- Vulnerable children have been able to access education because they are not paying school fees, except some parents who have accepted to pay affordable fee of Ksh. 300/= a month for the running of the school.
- Some parent stay at their places as housewives now can go to search for jobs because they leave their children at school.
