Summary

Education is the surest path to prosperity, and teachers play a vital role in a child's education. Yet in Kenya's primary schools, the ratio of students to teachers is 47:1. When teachers are in charge of so many children, students' education can suffer. By supporting teachers, Hope 4 Africa's partner schools can hire more qualified teachers and ensure they have the tools they need to provide a quality education to students. Help Hope 4 Africa sponsor 3 teachers at 6 schools with this project.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Schools in Kenya don't have enough teachers to provide a quality education. With teachers responsible for too many students, those students do not receive the time and attention they need to learn, grow, and succeed. We can address this issue by sponsoring teachers at each of Hope 4 Africa's six partner schools. The desire for more teachers was expressed by the schools as a significant need with a substantial impact.

How will this project solve this problem?

At Ogilgei Primary School, each teacher is responsible for educating 43 students. Hope 4 Africa is working to lessen this ratio, ensuring teachers are doing more teaching, students are doing more learning, and the entire country and continent is growing more prosperous. An educated population has the power to address the issues facing the continent, and teachers play a large role in providing such a quality education.

Potential Long Term Impact

If you educate a generation, they will reward you with peace, health, and prosperity. An educated child is more likely to secure a job, stay healthy, and contribute to their community throughout their life. This project positively affects the education of 1,800 students, helping them reach their potential and helping their communities achieve sustainable development.
