St. Martin School

giacomogiacomo supports St. Martin school located in the Huruma’s slum, on the other side of town from Ongata Rongai “district”.

Here we cooperate with the comboni fathers of the Korogocho’s parish, where father Zanotelli lived for more than 10 years. He raised funds for the building site with the help of many volunteers who took part during a work camp.

Father Maurizio Binaghi, Comboni and director of St. Martin School:
St. Martin School is in the Huruma’s slum of Nairobi, one of the world’s most densely populated areas. More than 200.000 people live in Huruma in little more than 2 square kilometre.

St. Martin School hosts student from 5 to 15 years old (from nursery to class 8) being amongst the poorest of the slum. Many of them are orphan, most of them only have their mother, since many are abandoned from their father. Everyone is extremely poor and lives in one-room housings made of metal sheet and mud, sometimes up to 8 people live there.

St. Martin School has been built by Comboni Missionaries in order to provide primary education to children and adolescents who otherwise could not go to school.

The giacomogiacomo association was and is the first partner, sensible and focused on this project.
