Our school in the tea plantations
Limuru is located in the tea plantations in Kenya. Here there is a very small school run by retired nuns only, who take care of the children coming from this area.
Alice for Children intervened by paying teachers’ wages.
The conditions in the tea plantations is not happier than the one in Rombo or Nairobi: here, families are paid according to how many kilos of tea-leaves they pick, without considering that, when it is not the season, families have no income.
Crumbling shacks are behind the tea plantations.
ALLAMANO PRIMARY SCHOOL IN LIMURU
