Summary

In Kibera, a large informal settlement in Nairobi, Kenya, less than half of the children who complete primary school joins secondary school. Turning Point is working to change that. We share the costs with parents so their children get the opportunity to go to secondary school. This year we aim to support over 50 young people to attend secondary school.

Challenge

James is 15 and lives in Kibera, he just finished primary school and is eager to continue his education. He aims to be a journalist in the future but his parents cannot afford the school fees. Many young people in Kibera, like James, do not get to attend high school as the costs are just too high. Bright and talented young people are missing out on their opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge due to poverty.

Solution

We share the cost of high school with families to ensure each child gets an opportunity to continue their education. The family gets to choose which school they can afford with our support. The young people also take part in holiday programmes that build their confidence and leadership qualities. We help them explore future careers and set goals to achieve their dreams.

Long-Term Impact

With more education and soft skills for the workforce, students will be able to access higher-paying and more secure jobs in future. They will be able to break out of the cycle of poverty and raise their own families with greater opportunities.
