Kani Africa in conjunction with the Students For Advancement of Science organization at Kent state University, have partnered to reach out to an educational facility located in a remote island on the outskirts of Kenya. The school, " Gethsemane Garden Christian Center," is an orphanage and home to about four hundred students coming from families living in extreme poverty or who have been orphaned by HIV/AIDS, which is a major pandemic in the island and surrounding islands. Data analyzed from a recent survey shows that up to 60% of pregnant women are infected with HIV on this and surrounding islands. A more detailed picture of the situation can be seen in this short documentary (click to watch Video)
The goal of Kani Africa and the Students For Advancement Of Science is to set up solar energy to power the school's facilities in order to insure that the students have a conducive learning environment . On this Island, the students have no access to electricity and are forced to depend on a single generator which is neither cost effective nor dependable. As a result, class sessions and school operations have to be called off due to lack of a secure supply of energy. It is the hope of Kani Africa that these children get a chance at a quality education and a greener future, with the eventuality that they will go out into their community as the main agents of change . It is for this reason that Kani Africa hopes to partner not only with the Students For Advancement Of Science but also with you to ensure sustainable energy for this school while promoting green energy implementation and providing hope for a better future.
