Matsarigi-Project Community Development
Our latest project, Matsarigi, is supporting the local community through sustainability endeavours to assist them out of poverty.
During the last 2 years, due to school4Life’s involvement in the Matsarigi community, 64 children have been able to commence their education by attending kindergarten. We have hired two teachers and two support staff who are assisted by several volunteer women from the community. We have invested over 120’000 Euros/Swiss Francs into building the infrastructure including the school building, a kitchen and toilets.
We are egg-cited to support them with income generating opportunities through a chicken and goat farm. To accomplish the chicken and goat farm, we first needed to build a wall around the entire perimeter of the property (over 600 meters in length!) to keep the animals safe. With local eggs-perts onsite and your support, we have finalized the wall and will hopefully hear the cock-a-doodle-doo soon!
In addition, our cooperation with the Strategy and International Management (SIM) students from St. Gallen University continues. This group of volunteers and eggs-perts looked into the best ways of implementing the chicken farm. They visited the school in April 2022 and fell in love with our children. Some more fundraising is needed before we can hopefully share some omelets with the kids soon.
Do not be chickenhearted, please help laying the future of our children by sponsoring one (or several) chickens for our farm to take flight. One chicken is as little as 5 CHF / EUR and 500 are needed in total. Can we eggs-ceed together?

Hi, hello school4life family, I am John Willy, and I once again want to show out my gratitude for your hand of help towards my studies. It is now 10 years down the line that I have been benefitting from your program and you made my dream come true. As a first born in my family, I had to light a way for my siblings and cousins to follow the path and it would not be easy if not for your program. I am current third year student at Meru University of Science and Technology. I study Bachelor of Commerce, but I will be specializing with accounting option once we resume for studies.
THANK YOU SCHOOL4LIFE FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT.
YOU ARE GOD SENT. GOD BLESS YOU. ALL. I LOVE YOU!!!!! Johnwill

In God grace I will finish my degree and graduate 2024 hoping that I may continue with masters. God willing. Thank you School4life you have made my dreams come true.
