About AIC MANANJA ACADEMY:
The AIC MANANJA ACADEMY has been created to fight illiteracy in Machakos region of Eastern province by helping children within and beyond Mananja area through offering school-based education. The school also aims to offer education to the under privileged in this community. The project shall work in collaboration with the government children’s department; churches and community based organizations, NGOs and others, to help identify children who can be admitted to the project as beneficiaries.
The targeted children are those from within the region with an inclination to the orphaned, single parented and those coming from most of poor families within the area. The school has a feeding program for all the children in the school.
Currently most children in the area grow up illiterate resulting in early marriages, early pregnancies, crime and insecurity, drugs and prostitution. Many parents due to high cost of living are unable to take their children to school and they end up doing dirty odd jobs. These people need basic education, counselling, rehabilitation, school facilities and moral care. The creation of school facilities in educational environment for the academic ethical and spiritual growth is a requirement for children and social care for change. This group is to find ways to fund raise to support these aims.
