Kalukuni Mixed Day Secondary School
A community School Adventure Travel Kenya Safaris through its partners and Guests works closely with Kalukuni Mixed Secondary School, Kalukuni Primary School, Kasooni Primary School in Yatta District, Machakos County. Kalukuni Mixed Secondary School is an initiative of the elite youth and the community to find the cheapest way in which the poorest in the community can afford to take their children to the secondary school level after primary qualification. The school fees being a Day school is fair and now some can afford while others receive assistance from us and other donors.
The idea behind the school was triggered by the following factors
a) Kalukuni Mixed Secondary School is located in Yatta District, Machakos County which is an Arid zone receiving very little or no rainfall at all annually and though agriculture is the communities prevalence they end up harvesting nothing from their farms ,hence hunger and poverty is a serious threat to livelihood of the locals. With this poverty level nothing will be left to educate their children past primary education though the kids are bright and willing to continue with their education. The primary school drop outs would end up either being criminals or engage in drugs. Girls will engage in early marriages with a high risk of contracting HIV-Aids.
b) Orphaned children from parents who died of HIV AIDS and have no one to take care of their education after primary section. Hence the need for “SOMEONE “to see them through secondary education. The school due to the surrounding environment poverty level has a lot of challenges and lacks basic essential facilities for a conducive learning environment. It is with a lot pleasure and honour that Adventure Travel Kenya invites any willing Donor to support this noble course as guided below

Suswa Maasai community poverty alleviation project
Suswa is also a dry area found within the basin of Great Rift Valley. The inhabitants are the Maasai pastoral community. Water for both human consumption and livestock is very scarce. Since culturally the Maasai are Livestock Keepers and this is their main source of livelihood, Adventure Travel Safaris thought it was wise to talk to its Friends and see how we can avail water to the community. Currently a Director of Adventure Travel James Simiren is through his friends raising funds to sink a borehole for the Suswa community. This we believe will;
Reduce the suffering the he Maasai women trek everyday for almost whole day trying to find water for the family.
Provide water to the Livestock which are economic pillar of the community hence improving on the local population livelihoods Provide clean water and reduce the risk of contacting water borne diseases.
The problem of orphans in Kenya is on the increase as indicated by various government and non governmental organizations reports. This is largely due to the HIV/AIDS scourge. The National Aids and Sexually Transmitted Disease Control Programme (NASCOP) estimated that HIV/AIDS orphans would be approximately 965,000 in the year 2012. In the year 2002 an average of 700 people were dying everyday from HIV/AIDS related illness.
HIV/AIDS has a great negative impact on our country and as such it was declared a national disaster in the year 2000 by the then President of Kenya. It heavily burdens the citizens who are already suffering from the effects of poverty, tropical diseases and high levels of illiteracy.
The phenomenon of households headed by children is on the increase due to the deaths of the parents. The eldest children in families are forced by this circumstance to take up the role of the deceased parents. This is especially the case in the urban areas where they are away from their extended families. Such children often drop out of school so that they can earn a living and support their younger siblings. On the other hand in the rural areas you find that grandparents have the burden to bring up their grand children who have been orphaned.
Orphans are faced by many difficulties like lack of basic needs like food, clothing, shelter, medical care and even education. Studies show that they contribute to the largest number of street children as they opt to go to the streets where they beg for handouts and rummage in the garbage in search of food. Other orphans get involved in hazardous activities like prostitution as they struggle to eke for a living.
There is an urgent need to look in to the problems of these orphans by ensuring that their needs are met. There is a great need to empower them so that they can rise above their suffering and disadvantages.
