One of Elephant Cooperation’s partners is Amson Education Center in Mathare, Kenya, a school where more than 280 students are enrolled. This flagship program (funded by Elephant Cooperation) is designed to educate and empower children in the Mathare slum where the students are given three meals a day.
By providing nutrition it helps alleviate the family’s stress of providing food for their children as well as an incentive for families to encourage their children to attend school and get educated.
On the grounds of the school, Amson Education Centre built a small bakery called Vinmark Bakery. This is a small business that helps fund the school with profits made from the goods they produce.
