With almost 100 children crammed in a single church hall in the slums of Nyalenda, Valley Academy posed several unique challenges. Lack of a feeding programme, no proper desks and chairs, not enough books to go around, a shortage of teachers, no separate classrooms for the children to name a few. However, we haven't met a more up-beat bunch of kids despite the circumstances... They shared whatever little food was there with their friends, used their creativity to make charts out of sacks of food (popularly known as 'gunia' locally) and made the best of a difficult situation.
