Summary

Enable children in Kenya, especially orphans and street children, to attend school by directly providing school uniforms, shoes, fees, tuition, desk, textbooks, school supplies, and/or school lunches.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In Kenya, over one million primary school aged children are not in school often due to the lack of a school uniform, shoes or fees. 30% of the population ages 15-24 are illiterate. Only 20% of those who enroll in primary school complete all eight years. Less than half the students eligible for secondary school are enrolled. Only 5% of Kenya’s 2.4 million orphans have hope of completing a minimal level of education.

How will this project solve this problem?

Each child educated encourages the education of another. $5,700 buys: 64 school uniforms and pairs of shoes, 4 high school student full year tuition, 10 desks, one year of school lunches for 20 students and books or school supplies for 70 students.

Potential Long Term Impact

Education is not just literacy; it is an effective tool to eradicate poverty and a powerful channel for peace and personal progress. Providing direct assistance to identified students and schools allows many children the opportunity for potent change
