Visma Advokater supports Karlsvogna Children Development Center's education fund
In 2014 Visma Advokater’s Christmas campaign went to the education of children from Karlsvogna children development center in Kenya! We collected NOK 110.000 and all the money went directly to the kids at the center.
Karlsvogna children development center is built in cooperation with the Norwegian organization Aid in Action. The center is located two hours outside Nairobi and assists about 100 homeless or extremely disadvantaged children. The children come to the center daily to get food, a safe place to hang out, and a place to play and rest. The children also get the opportunity to wash themselves, have assistance with their homework and to receive general care from the adults who work at the center.
In Kenya, the primary school is compulsory and free. This is however not the case for the middle school. Karlsvogna children development center's education fund ensures that these children have the opportunity to continue their education. NOK 89 per month per child will cover tuition, school supplies and food. Through the education fund these children are provided with opportunities they would not have gotten otherwise.
