Our schools are in the Kibera slum, the poorest neighborhood in Kenya. Most people live here on $ 1 a day. It’s more accurate to say they’re surviving. All the children see around them are ramshackle shacks made from the rusty remains of iron containers and mountains of garbage that have not been removed from Kibera for decades.

The most our school children’s parents can buy them is a bowl of corn porridge for dinner… The slum kids have no books or toys.

Children in a country where the Big Five — lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and leopard — live in beautiful safari parks have not seen them even in pictures.

We are trying to remedy the situation. Our children have already been to the zoo and amusement park. They gave fruit to monkeys and stroked giant turtles, squealed on swings. These trips were the happiest moments of their childhood.

And now we want to organize for our schoolchildren an excursion to the National Museum of Kenya, so that they could get acquainted with the legendary "Lucy", the first Australopithecus, found in neighboring Ethiopia, and learn that they live in the "cradle of mankind".
