COCO’s Schools for Life model focuses on developing sustainable, quality, education in remote communities. The model incorporates six core elements of Shelter, Power, Food, Water and Sanitation, Sport and Recreation, and Entrepreneurship.
Alongside access to a high quality education, we believe that children should have the opportunity to be children. By learning and playing together children develop vital social and communication skills. Our partners have identified the need for safe and innovative spaces to do this:
Developing specially-designed playgrounds at each of the schools COCO supports in Kenya is a growing focus for our partners.
These will support children's health and development, drawing together music, balance, sensory stimulation, relaxation and mobility.
They will also promote the development of healthy relationships between girls and boys within the safe school environment.
