Dago Classroom Project
The Dago village is where Peter Midodo grew up surrounded by a multitude of family members many of whom still live there today. Kevin and Sarah Maynard who founded Hands and Feet of Hope, a division of Hope for Kenya became actively involved in the community, teaching the women to make paper beads for necklaces and bracelets, providing micro loans to empower ladies to provide for themselves. Amazing progress has been made in these areas but one area remained a desperate need. Education for the children! After visiting the local school and finding small classrooms with over 100 students packed like sardines Sarah knew she had to do something for these children.
Upon returning to the States they began to raise funds in the Fall of 2017 to begin the multi classroom project. As of Oct 2018 four classrooms have been built thanks to their tireless efforts and the generosity of their friends and friends of Hope for Kenya. The 5th classroom is almost complete only in need of a roof, windows and doors. Once this is complete work will begin on the next two classrooms.
Each classroom costs $8,000 to build.
