Summary

Uhuru Child will build a Secondary School for Internally Displaced Teens in Kenya and also employ their parents in Social Businesses where profits will generate income and also subsidize school fees.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Due to the Post Election Violence of 2007, there are roughly 7,000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) living in re-settlement villages in Maai Mahiu, Kenya. As families struggle to rebuild their lives, they are faced with a lack of access to jobs and to quality education. Without a stable income, families struggle to purchase the necessities needed to survive. Without education, children will lack the knowledge and skills needed to break the cycle of poverty. This project will aid 1,200 IDPs.

How will this project solve this problem?

Uhuru Child will build a Secondary School to educate 240 Internally Displaced Teens and employ their parents in Social Businesses (sanitary pad production, rabbit keeping) where profits after wages will go towards subsidizing school fees.

Potential Long Term Impact

This school will educate 240 Internally Displaced teens every year, equipping them with the skills to succeed in the job market and University. The social businesses will meet pressing social needs and lift families out of poverty through profits.
