Long-Term Volunteering in Kenya

St. Vianeey Academy

Children
St Vieeny

Vianeey Academy and Children Centre provides education and feeding program to children aged 3-14 years. The children are from low-income families, orphans, from single parents and others have disabilities and special needs. The Centre was established in 2016 as a result of the founder's great passion to help the needy children, love for the children and selfless heart to help the needy.

Project Profile

His mission is to go all over the country and reach the needy children, work with the young women and youth to establish a community college where they can learn skills to empower themselves and support their families. In his mission he realized that most children in Rodi area are orphans, others had dropped out of school and others were left out as they didn't conform to the set pass marks in various schools. He was challenged by this and it geared him to establishing a Centre where these children can get quality education to equip them for their future lives.

The Centre has opened its doors to all children where they can get access to medical facilities which is a challenge In Rodi as people hardly have access to a medical facility, therefore, leading to high death rates and also the high cost of attaining medication.

Vianeey Academy and Children Centre is a democratic Centre that aims at providing quality education to the children through professional teaching and acquisition of books for the children, provision of recreation activities where the children can discover their talents at a tender age, feeding program as some of the families can barely afford meals in a day.
