Since we began as a charity, we have taken out
Since we began as a charity, we have taken out dozens of groups of people from the UK and elsewhere to volunteer in Mombasa.
Young people, teachers, school groups and more – people from all walks of life have helped our charity realise its dream of making things better for children in Mombasa. Everyone in our groups has something to offer Unity School, whether it’s a talent or skill, and groups normally carry out different projects during their time in Mombasa. Our teachers are supported by teachers from the UK and elsewhere, who help at the school at different times in the year and help with the professional development of our staff.
Teachers from the UK have worked with their Kenyan counterparts to help raise standards in Mathematics, Science and English.
Unity is an English speaking school, but the younger pupils often come with very little understanding of the English language. All examinations are written in English, so it is vital that children have more
than just a good grounding. We have worked hard to improve teaching in the early years and the Unity Management team have an excellent team of teachers in place. Unity School is now one of the top schools in Mombasa, measured by the KPCE results.
Some of our volunteers with medical experience have volunteered some of their time with Dr Luke Odhiero at his medical centre. In addition, our Trustees have supported the Unity School Management Team with management training, IT training and support.
