Water for Success
The Elatia Community Centers will be located adjacent to the new water wells as places for residents to gather informally or to participate in various community programs. The Elatia Community Centers will also offer youth mentorship and provide resources for educational success and social improvement, including collaborative projects with communities in Wisconsin. IndiMark and IndiMark Kenya will be co-creating this infrastructure, with input from residents, to ensure these centers are designed to meet local community standards and are flexible enough to adapt to a wide variety of activities and future needs.
Elatia (Neighbor) Community Center
The Elatia Community Centers will be focal points for neighborhood activities. Located adjacent to the newly built water wells in Kajiado County, they will be places for residents to gather or to participate in various community programs. The Elatia Community Centers will also offer youth mentorship and provide resources for educational success and social improvement, as well as a place for collaborative projects with communities in Wisconsin.
Your Sponsorship of a community center includes assistance for the construction of a basic four room building; well room, serving kitchenette, multipurpose room (classrooms by day, dormitory at night), and bathrooms.
Scholarship for Success
There is a need for Scholarships so that youths in grades K-8 can attend boarding school. These youths have severe family hardships (orphaned, single parents, etc.). Youth are screened by the school and have already demonstrated appropriate test scores for admittance. Your Sponsorship of $1,000 covers basic tuition, boarding fees, and uniform.
Thanks to the Franz family from Chicago, two orphaned girls received scholarships to continue their education at Primary School - Ngong Hills and Secondary School - Kibwezi in Makindu, both in Kajiado County.
IndiMark - Books are Power Collaboration
In January 2019, IndiMark partnered with Books are Power, a Madison-based non-profit organization that donates gently used books to Kenyan primary and secondary schools. This has lead to the donation and distribution of over 1,000 books to our four communities partners.
