Two Kenyan teachers – Kevin Okinyi Onyango and Vincent Onyango Rowa work at primary school of the Island of Hope at Rusinga Island in Kenya. Island of Hope is a project of Narovinu Centre and most of the children are orphans coming from very poor families.
The project has been running successfully since 2003 also thanks to numerous Czech and Slovak sponzors, that support local kids via various programs, e.g. the program of Adoptions of African Children – the project of remote support.
The two teachers have been invited to the Czech Republic by their partnership school Park Lane, that offered them consultation, possibility to new gain experience by teaching at the Prague international school and participation at an international teachers´ training, which is organized each year for their staff.
They will also be able to visit other schools that are active in the program of Partnership between Czech and Kenyan schools and will have the opportunity to meet students and the general public and to discuss various topics, not only the Kenyan school system.
