Kaimenyi Visits Scholar’s Youth Tutoring Project

Catherine Kaimenyi, PATHWAYS student coordinator and mentor, visited David Mundia’s project in the Karagocho slum area in Nairobi. David is from this area and encountered difficulties with finding a place to study when he was in school. Almost no houses have electricity so there is no light to study by and there is little privacy for concentration. Now as his PATHWAYS project, David has rented a nearby hall with electricity and provided tutoring to help children learn their school work in an environment conducive to studying.
