The Full Story

About The School Teacher

Education is unattainable for the average person in Mathare. Opening a public school in Matahre would make education attainable, equitable, and accessible. Our mission is to help all students reach their full potential.

About this image

This picture was taken right outside the school. Students fight to attend school, where they love to learn. This is a picture of the founder of Starfish International and a school teacher surrounded by students in Mathare.  

About this image

This is of a school teacher and her current students standing on the ground where the school will be built. The students are holding the design of their future school!


Students pay 25 dollars a month to attend school, and the average citizen of Mathare makes two dollars a day. The people of Mathare work hard daily, yet education is unattainable for the average person. Women are forced into poverty-based prostitution because there is no access to learn a trade or attend high school. The school teacher in this photo puts all her money and effort into educating students on her own salary.
