In early 2004, ten community members saw a pressing need for educational opportunities for the local children of the Ngando slum in Nairobi, Kenya. In March 2005, Hope Streams Academy opened its doors for 11 students, providing one teacher in two rented classrooms. The entire operation was run through community donations and support. Since then, the school has grown to serve 222 students in 8 classrooms, providing teachers, supplies and meals to needy children.


After fifteen years of consistent growth, Hope Streams Academy has reached a point where future growth will require changes to be made and new strategies implemented to ensure the continuity of the school.

Kids for Tomorrow purchased property for Hope Streams Academy to run the school on their own land, supplemented teachers salaries, sponsored students, and plan to build a permanent structure to ensure a clean and safe environment for these students to learn and grow in.
