Step-up for Kenya
Global citizenship is about the understanding of different cultures, values and religions and having the belief that we can make a difference to the injustice and inequality in our world. We believe that everyone has their part to play and that education is fundamental in tackling these issues. At Johari Foundation we aim to bridge the gap between children and young adults in Kenya and the UK and to encorage links to develop to gain an understanding of culture and values.
Our philosophy is Empowerment through Opportunity and we believe that by giving vulnerable children and young adults the opportunity to an education we can help them on the road to a positive future. We encourage you to Step-up for Kenya and get your school or organisation involved in Johari Foundation challenges, competitions and events to help support the children on the Miale Social Development programmes and learn about the culture and values of others. Our fundraising news will highlight how you can become involved.
Karyn Wyse, Kinghorn Primary School
"Kinghorn Primary School has been working with the Johari Foundation since 2010. During this time we have organised various fundraising events to aid the children on the Miale Programmes but also to develop the Kinghorn pupils' knowledge of global citizenship.
"We have used the Johari Foundation and their Miale programme to provide a meaningful context to deliver a focused approach to global learning.
"We have appreciated the Johari Foundation's support in helping our children understand that not all children around the world receive the rights they are entitled to and have shown how we can help. The children thoroughly enjoy visits from Ruth & Laura and are always very keen to hear stories about their trips and are full of questions. The children were overwhelmed when they saw the books the children on the Miale Programmes had made and loved seeing their crafts.
"I feel we have an excellent relationship with the Johari Foundation, which is sustainable through class and whole school projects. We look forward to continuing to work with the Johari Foundation and develop global citizenship in our school."
