Summary

The Fueling Education program provides food and light for students who stay at school to extend their study hours in preparation for their entrance exam to secondary school.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Students in Kenya must overcome many obstacles as they seek to get a good education. Two of those are the their lack of food and light. None of these students have electricity in their homes, which makes completing their schoolwork and preparing for exams very difficult. Students' families are also extremely poor and often cannot provide more than one meal per day, if that. Without the "fuel" they need, students often fail to achieve passing scores and are unable to continue their schooling.

How will this project solve this problem?

Fueling Education accomplishes two simple but important things: it provides generator-powered light at the school so that students can study after dark, and it provides food for students who cannot provide it themselves. By removing these two obstacles students have the fuel they need: light to study by and food to satisfy their needs so their minds can focus.

Potential Long Term Impact

Fueling Education meets the immediate needs of students in Kenya who are eager to get an education. With their needs met, students complete required schoolwork and are better prepared to achieve passing marks on the entrance exam for secondary school. Given the chance to complete secondary school and higher education, students have increased earning power and opportunities to improve life for themselves, their families, and their communities.
