About

Skills Alliance have chosen Project Riandu as our charity of the year to support this ambitious project in giving access to employment for underprivileged people. As recruitment specialists in the pharmaceutical sector we tend to work with candidates that have had the privilege to full education and, ultimately access to well-paid technical employment opportunities. We feel that contributing towards bridging a gap for those without access to even secondary education (and further employment opportunities) is our duty.

Project Riandu 2016

Project Riandu aims to combat the lack of secondary school education for deaf people in Kenya. Invited by Mbeere Mothers Union, we are supporting construction of a school for 200 deaf teenagers in eastern Kenya and we'd love your help! In Kenya there are an estimated 300,000 deaf children and teenagers. While at primary level there are 72 schools, at secondary there were only 5, leaving deaf people lacking in education and communication skills.This year they're building a dining hall, staff houses and completing a dormitory. We'll be doing sponsored challenges, arranging fun events, holding stalls at conferences and festivals all to raise awareness and finances to facilitate real change to the lives and opportunities of deaf people in Kenya. This is the last volunteer trip but not the end of the project. The Project Riandu community will continue fundraising: gradually decreasing as the local capacity to sustainably support the project grows.
