Education is a challenge at any level in the Rongai community. Tony and James have uncovered one of the areas the proves to be one of the biggest issues.
They have heard from the community that once kids complete standard 8 in a government school, going onto secondary level is difficult becuase of fees. Many parents that can scrounge together enough money to pay for the not-so-free primary education just cannot find enough to pay secondary school fees.
Some challenges around this issue are dependancy and double sponsorship of children by other organizations working in the community. Both challenges are proof that these current organizations are just not working together and, in fact, may be hurting more than helping in some cases.
Tony and James are working toward bringing Rongai together so they are fighting one battle as one united front.
How can we, as another NGO, work alongside others? How can we find a common goal and bring in all of ourstrengths to acheive that goal?
