The local Salesian school offers high-quality education for domestic Turks, as well as for the people from the Kakuma refugee camp. The greatest challenge concerning education in this community is the rising shortage of teachers. Many teachers are afraid to move to this remote region. The solution will be to build an accommodation facility that will offer those teachers an environment safe enough for them to be able to devote themselves fully to teaching.
From March 3, 2022 to April 27, 2022, the Slovak public could participate in the campaign not only through financial assistance, but also thanks to the activities that the organization offered on its website www.tehlicka.sk and in the accompanying brochure. Thanks to a Slovak public, an amount of EUR 42,081 has been raised over the past two months. The collection to support the construction of an accommodation for teachers lasts until the end of October.
