6 Week Lesson Plan to Learn & Fundraise for Daylight Bunk Beds

We are really excited about the Six Week Lesson Plan we created for you to learn about Daylight School in Kenya! The curriculum is meant to help adults and children learn the stories of children who live and learn at Daylight and collect donations to buy new bedding for our children in the dormitory. Each lesson is about 5 minutes and works great in a classroom, with a small group, or around the family dinner table!

Daylight currently has 70 children living in the dorms. Soon, that will expand to 140 students in K – 8th grade living and learning at Daylight!

We need 140 sets of new blankets, sheets, pillows, and mattresses. Our fundraising goal is $40 per bed, for a total f $5,600! 

Our Daylight board members would love to come and say thank you to your group. Please email us at nathan@daylightcenter.org so we can coordinate a time that works!

We have created two versions of this lesson plan. We have a lesson centered around the Christian holiday of Lent and one that is not religious.

This is an example of the lessons.

Daylight Kenya 6 week Lesson Plan

Lesson #1

During the next six weeks, we are going to learn about Daylight School in Kenya. Many of the children there grew up in the Rift Valley Desert. They had to walk a long way to get water, and there weren’t schools there.

KenyaKenya is on the East side of Africa, and our school (in red) is located on the very edge of the desert.

Daylight helps kids from the desert go to school. Some kids have to live at the school because their families have died or they live very far away from the school.

We will be learning about the kids in Kenya and giving money to help the kids get new mattresses, sheets, and blankets for their bunk beds.

We are going to make a bunk bed out of Popsicle sticks to collect the money we raise each week.

You can also put a piece of mesh over it to represent the mosquito nets the kids have.

And if you would like to donate $40 right now to buy a bedding set for the children of Daylight, the children would be so grateful!
