In 1998, the Director of VOLSET FOUNDATION Festus and other dedicated stakeholders began supporting children to attend school. By 2004, he was able to increase the number of children receiving sponsorships with the help of international volunteers. In 2007, Festus and other members started seeing a problem with the primary schools that received these sponsored children.Too many of these schools were more of money minded other than the child welfare. As a result, we no longer felt comfortable sending these children to such unhealthy settings and they decided the only solution was to create a school that would facilitate a safer, more progressive learning environment. Future Diplomats Education Centre primary school opened its doors to the children in 2009.
Kristen, a recent college graduate from America interned with Volset during the summer of 2011 to finish her BS in Community Health Education. While serving the Ntenjeru community, she sought to create a long lasting sustainable impact with the children of Future Diplomats Education Centre. Thus leading to the establishment of Future Diplomats Education Centre Foundation registered as an NFPO in Washington, USA.
