What Inspired Our Project?
Annamaria Kanondo visited the Mabogini area and was struck by the conditions in which young children, particularly girls, were living. In a country where most children attend primary school, Anna saw that many children in Mabogini, often girls, had no access to education at all. The extreme poverty in the area has also led to children facing severe neglect or abandonment, physical or even sexual abuse
And So Our Journey Started …
Using her own savings and money donated from her family and friends Annamaria set up a small school in the Mabogini area to provide primary education to 20 children who would otherwise never receive it. KYGN also started to act as a social service in the area, working with village Chairmen and local authorities to support at risk families.
So early on 2007, The school demand quickly grew to 60 children. To accommodate all of the children overflow, classrooms had to be built out of whatever materials could be found.
Anna knew that the only way to provide the kind of education needed would be to construct a proper school building for the KYGN children. In 2011, KYGN painstakingly raised enough funds to build the new school.
A year later, KYGN started the partnership with KYGN UK, a charity registered in the United Kingdom (Registration 1157362) with the purpose to facilitate abroad donations and assist on fundraising.
Aiming to be a self-sustainable organisation, KYGN started a tilapia farm, as well as maize and onions plantations in lands donated to the project.
