Kakenya's Dream

The Kakenya Center for Excellence seeks to empower and motivate young girls through education to become agents of change and to break the cycle of destructive cultural practices in Maasai Kenya such as female genital cutting and early forced marriage. We believe in impacting one girl at a time, one community at a time, until all girls in Africa have the opportunities they need to thrive as individuals. These future women leaders will improve their communities, their nation, and the world.

The Kakenya Center for Excellence offers a high-quality education for underprivileged Maasai girls in grades 4-8. Test scores and self-esteem have risen dramatically since its inception in 2009. A nurturing boarding school with a broad academic and extracurricular curriculum, we provide a safe place for 170 girls to achieve their dreams. Our goal is to prepare students for their grade 8 exams so they can be accepted to high-quality secondary schools. project reportread updates from the field

Girls in Maasai Kenya are at risk of child marriage and FGM. KCE, a primary boarding school for girls ages 8-15, combats these practices. Students are empowered and motivated to achieve their full potential. The leadership camp pairs KCE girls with girls from neighboring public schools. Along with health education, girls learn leadership concepts such as self-confidence, speaking up, and empowerment. The program also includes monthly weekend trainings at neighboring schools for 6-7 grade girls. project reportread updates from the field
