Serious drought in Kenia


Serious drought can be seen all over the dry savannah-landscape near Nairobi in Kenya, where the Rudolf Steiner School Mbagathi is situated. Long dry cracks are spreading networks through the soil and the acacia trees are dusty grey and brown. Nothing can grow. There are worries all over.

It is difficult for people to get their daily food and goods in the markets, and in the shops food is scarce and prices go up. In Nairobi the water is at a seriously low level, which means that the wells are closed many days of the month. As a result of climate change, the situation is extremely problematic.

Everyday at the Rudolf Steiner School Mbagathi the 330  children  receive  millet porridge at break and a warm and fulfilling meal with rice, maize, and vegetables at lunch. Right from the beginning in 1989 the school committed to support children from very poor families who cannot pay school fees and where the struggle for the daily food overshadows everything. These daily meals at the school have really been crucial for the children’s health and development.

The whole idea  of  offering  healthy  meals is a core-idea in the work with the children, and it is a strong wish that  the school can continue to offer meals. The amount needed for the school to cover the food is:

•   Euro 100 for a child per year (The children get two warm meals a day for this amount.)

•   OR Euro 10 for a child per month
