This project will supply school uniforms and materials such as books, notebook and pens for 100 children attending the Kipkeino school in Kenya. For children to be able to attend school in Kenya, uniforms and materials are an essential requirement that is often unaffordable for parents, and the reason why many cannot send their children to school. With your help we will ensure that these 100 children will have everything they need during the next school year.
Right now, in Kenya, only 20% of children are able to finish primary school as most families cannot afford the school fees and additional costs of education. The incidence of poverty and unemployment in the region has increased after the COVID-19 pandemic and as a result, there is a growing need in the community for educational support from Lewa Children's Home and School. Many children are unable to access an education as their families simply do not have the means to pay for all the extras.
This project will provide 100 children that would not have had the opportunity otherwise, with a school uniform and all materials they need for the attendance of one school year. This will not only improve their education in a the short term but may also lay the path to improving their future prospects.
Thanks to your support, we will be able to continue caring for these vulnerable children, providing them with top-quality education and equipping them to become the leaders of tomorrow. Thanks to the Baraka farm, which provides food and income for the children, Lewa has become a model of self-sustainable development, inspiring many in the region and all over the continent. By sending these children to school equipped with the proper uniform and supplies, they can create a promising future.
