WTPP HELPING KENYA & LOCAL TURKANA COMMUNITIES
KANAPOI PRIMARY SCHOOL
The WTPP is thrilled to announce that the brand new Kanapoi Primary School opened its doors to 36 enthusiastic students this past June. They are already learning fast and doing well. The Kanapoi area has had no school for more than fifteen years. This was the one thing that the local people wanted most. Working with community leaders and government officials, the WTPP constructed a basic building last year, and secured a teacher and even a school lunch program! We will add a concrete floor and desks next, and work with officials to provide more resources and expand to more grades soon.
The WTPP supports the Prehistory Club of Kenya, run by Fredrick Manthi through the National Museums of Kenya. The Prehistory Club makes presentations to local schools around Nairobi and beyond, holds workshops for teachers, brings kids from remote areas to the Nairobi National Museum for educational tours, and more. We consider educating Kenyans about their prehistory to be one of the most important things we can do as a project, and are excited to continue this effort.
