Dorm Renovation

The Friends of Seattle Mombasa Schools is a group of committed volunteers who cultivate sister school relationships between Seattle and Mombasa, Kenya. 

Over the last decade we have nurtured relationships with four Mombasa schools by offering scholarships and engaging in cultural and curricular exchanges. Our last major campaign resulted in successfully building a well that serves Ndavaya, a village of 10,000 people. 

During our delegation's most recent trip to Kenya we noted that the middle school student dorm is in great need of renovation

A renovated dorm will allow students to stay in school so they can graduate into high school and continue a pathway of success for their families. 

Here's a current picture of the dorm. Note the holes in the ceiling and the girls gathered in the one dry corner. Currently there are not enough nets and no beds.

$5000 will provide a new roof and 30 bunk beds outfitted with mattresses and mosquito nets. 

We're glad you are considering helping improve the lives of students in Mombasa! What may seem basic for us is a game changer for them. 

A donation of $1 will pay for a pound of roofing nails.

A donation of $7  will pay for one mosquito net.

A donation of $22 will pay for one mattress.

A donation of $100 will pay for one bed. 

A donation of $220 will pay for the koffia roofing material.

A donation of $680 will pay for the tin roofing sheets.
