Galilee Primary School and Waddington High School are located in the Kayole-Soweto slum area of Nairobi, Kenya. Over 1000 students attend school on the campus. Many of these children are orphans, all live in extremely needy circumstances. Our mission is to create opportunities for children living in the slums of Nairobi to receive an education and improve their quality of life. This is being accomplished through:

* Child Sponsorship
* Special Projects to improve the educational environment and infrastructure of the schools
* Addressing the needs of improved health and nutrition to enhance the learning potential of students
* Providing adequate funding to support a stable and qualified teaching staff

The recently relaunched website is powered by xoops. It uses a heavily modified theme, with the right center block being relocated to the top. In this block, you will find drop down menus that change depending on what part of the site you are in.

Also, we used a heavily adapted version of the MyAlbum gallery to create a database of children that are looking for sponsors. Lastly, there is an Online Shop powered by Zen Cart.
