Alleviating Poverty Through Education.
We give vulnerable children the tools they need to create brighter futures for themselves and their families.
More than 11 years ago Swanland Village Education Community based organization was established courtesy of Swanland Education Africa Trust, as a community based organization, with the aim of giving children in poverty the tools necessary for advancing and creating brighter future for themselves and their communities by offering quality education, care, support and protection in Ng’ando location, Dagoretti subcounty-Nairobi county. Later on in the year 2018, the organization dully registered as a community-based organization with the ministry of East Africa community, labor and social protection Kenya. Today, the CBO is a renowned organization working tirelessly to give every child within Ng’ando location the best possible start in life and access to a good education with the support of our good donors and sponsors, just like you. This has enabled the children within the region to gain the skills and confidence they need to create promising future that is free from poverty.

We Prepare & Empower children for Success in School and Life!
Bringing children together to get quality education and end poverty for good is our number one priority.
Being and education orientated intervention, SVEC operates a pre-primary and primary school dubbed – UPENDO SWANLAND ACADEMY within the target community. The school offers an intensive quality education programme under the 8.4.4. System and the new Competency Based Curricula. The school has a capacity of 264 children, however due to funding constraints we have always minimized the number of beneficiaries to a maximum of 200 pupils. We employ the services of qualified teaching staff, who instruct our children academically.
Our mission is to provide caring, high quality, free education and related services to under resourced children and their families in Ng’endo location. With the support of our donors and sponsors like you, these children will gain the skills and confidence they need to create promising future free from poverty.

Donations to the Needy.
When you sponsor a child, you change their future and give them a better hope of becoming successful persons in the society. Helping them see beyond the daily struggles of poverty is our number one agenda. Your support gives children the chance to create a better future not just for themselves, but for their families and communities too. Sponsorship starts a powerful multiplier effect that improves lives, communities and economies around the world.
Your sponsorship encompasses book donation program designed to address challenges faced by the poor families in acquiring books and educational resources for study for their children. This proven long-term approach has enabled us to acquire educational resources and materials necessary for their learning, empowering them to become educated, healthy and productive future young adults.
We aim at empowering the community through the provision of uniforms by targeting the underprivileged students & their families. Access to clean and appropriate school uniforms helps reduce the financial burden on families, encouraging regular school attendance and increasing student’s self-confidence within the community.
Large Playing Field.
Children in poverty often lack access to spaces like playing ground and recreational centers. They are more likely to be exposed to the dangers of violence, gangs and drugs at an early age. Our objective at Swanland village is to enhance their opportunity for physical activity, personal growth & social interaction. Your donation will assist us in mobilization of resources to establish or upgrade existing sports facilities.

Kenya’s poverty rate is one of the lowest in the world. Nearly 17% of Kenya’s population lives on less than $1.9 per day. However, the situation won’t change unless younger generations are educated to look for a better future. Unfortunately, the situation is even direr in rural areas of Kenya and Nairobi. Swanland Village School works to transform the lives of children living in poverty to give them a better future in Nairobi.
