Hai Center School
Hai Centre: where it all started! Hai Center is our pre-elementary school located within the community of Kabiria. Here we encourage social, psychological, and physical development of children ranging from 2 to 6 years old using Waldorf pedagogy and nutritious food.
Due to difficulties in accessing education, school dropout rates in Kenya are high, so when our Babies reach the age of starting elementary school, we work to ensure that they remain in school, establishing partnerships with local schools and raising the necessary resources for them to continue their studies. Our plan is to soon have our own elementary school in the community.
Schooling and Training for our teachers
Hai now has three teachers dedicated to our Babies and it is our responsibility to provide the best education for them as well. We believe in the importance of investing in local women so that they can grow and also bring the best to our classroom. We are proud to have funded the teachers Jane and Leah's colleges and continue to fund teacher Annette's.
Professional training project for our Babies' Mamas! At our company, founded in partnership with Project Três, they learn how to produce and sell handicrafts made with soapstone.
We dream of launching the Hai Africa model in communities in Brazil based on our experiences and learnings in Kenya. In the meantime, Mariana, our CEO and founder, conducts lectures and consults in Brazilian educational institutions.
We believe that together we can do more!
For this reason, we seek to partner with other organizations in order to join forces to strengthen our goals and spread our values. We believe that establishing partnerships contributes to making significant changes. Meet our partners:
