Last Monday our group spoke with Michell Oliel , one of the co-founders of Stahili foundation , for half an hour and we got some more insight on the foundation and how it works.
Regarding FUNDS , so far they have had a mouth to mouth strategy , reaching to friends and family to collect money as well as some other people from around the world. Since they are a small foundation they haven´t reached a huge amount of funds. Normally a kid needs around 3000$/4000$ for the whole education, since quality school is not cheap in Kenya as well as sports gear , house needs and all the things that a normal student would need to go to school. the older they get the more expensive they are. last year they raised around 40.000$.
Any volunteer from Europe will be welcome to participate in the program since it’s a lot of work and always extra hands will be needed.If we want to look for volunteers for Kenya they have to be trained professionals such as teachers , doctors , physiologists , nanny …etc. so basically the children can get the best education possible.
They post on their Facebook almost every day with some things that happen daily , some insight about what is actually happening over there , but their publicity is not well spread , ( twitter , instagram or any other source ) as said before their graphic design is pretty bad.
From our cooperation they are expecting any help possible , from raising funds , to improving their graphic design and publicity to make the volunteer base bigger. Our documetarian made this graph to visualise it:
