Marketor on a mission: Andrew Pound helps Red Rose School in Kenya

Wherever there is a Marketor, there is an opportunity for better marketing to do good things for good causes. One of our Marketors, Liveryman Andrew Pound is operating in Nairobi in Kenya to provide marketing support for the Red Rose School of Nairobi which provides primary education for children in the second largest urban slum in Africa. The slum has a population of about 700,000 people comprising nearly all the 42 tribes in Kenya, the majority of the slum population live on close to $1.25 a day.

Currently, the school has over 400 primary pupils enrolled in the program. The students come from all neighbourhoods of the slums, forming an ethnically, socially and economically balanced student body. The school offers a full range of primary school education, admitting children from kindergarten to grade eight (before they head off to high school).

Red Rose primary school offers a unique mix of core subjects, as well as extra-curricular activities, such as performing arts, scouting, music lessons, beadwork and soccer. The school has its own fair share of challenges and solutions. There is a feeding program in place whereby the school provides break and lunch (Monday-Friday). Most of these students can’t afford decent meals back at home thus relying on this daily ration. These feeding services also help in making sure that the pupils are in school and don’t skip lessons due to hunger.

If any Marketor would like to know more about the school, please contact Andrew directly
