5:40 – Partnering for Catholic Education in Kenya
Two schools – Embul-Bul Catholic Schools and St. Andrew Nkaimurunya are both located in the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya where the unemployment rate is 40%, half of the population lives below the poverty line, life expectancy is just 63 years and infant mortality rate is 43 deaths for every 1,000 births. Though Kenya offers free public education, in reality too few public schools exist — most are full and turn children away. They also turn away children who are academically behind for the ironic reason that they were previously unable to attend school. But Embul-Bul and St. Andrew welcome children off the streets and provide them with a quality education, daily nutritious lunches and a firm grounding in Catholic moral values. Jim Cavnar of Cross Catholic International Outreach is here to talk about their partnership with Ave Maria Radio to provide scholarships for Kenyan children.
