The Oloo Children Centre is a primary school in Kibera, a large slum in Nairobi, Kenya. The school was founded by Judy Oloo. Together with 15 teachers she provides education to 370 children from Kibera. These are children between the ages of 3 and 14 years. In principle, education in Kenya is free, but in practice there are compulsory contributions for uniforms, meals and learning materials. That is still a threshold for many families. It is precisely this threshold that Judy tries to take away.
Judy Oloo has a few jobs to pay the costs as teaching materials and food for the children. The school also receives support from tourists who want to lend a hand to philanthropic projects in Kenya. If there is money left, the teachers receive compensation.
