On 29th December 2020 BAPS Charities Nairobi donated school books to Nyathuna Primary School, which is in Kabete sub-county of Kiambu County. The public school is in a rural area hence most of the students come from humble backgrounds where their parents are mostly low-income earners who rely on small scale farming for a living.
The school caters for over 400 boys and girls from Grade 1 to 8. BAPS Charities donated the full curriculum of books to cater for all students from Grade 1 to 8. During the presentation, the Principal of the School Mr. Robert Karugo highly appreciated the donation saying the books will go a long way in uplifting education levels of the school, which will in turn uplift the livelihood of the community through education of their children.
Also present were the Deputy principal, Chairman of the board of governors, Senior teachers, Chairman and Members of the school Alumni. BAPS Charities Volunteers donated the books in commemoration of the 99th Birthday celebrations of HH Pramukh Swami Maharaj (1921-2016), with a view to support the betterment of the lives of the children, and the community as a whole, as we strive to progress his motto “In the Joy of others lies our own, In the progress of others lies our own”.
