Angaza Education Grants

By Diana Njuguna | Head Of Programs

At Akili Dada, we believe in the power of education to transform lives and communities. This is why we have the Angaza program, which means 'Light Up', dedicated to intervening at significant and potentially catalytic transition periods for girls and young women. We understand that girls and young women face unique challenges in accessing quality education and lifelong learning opportunities, hence our commitment to facilitating this access.

Through the Angaza program, we provide multi-year scholarships to women and girls from underserved backgrounds of Kilifi, Kwale, Turkana, and Samburu. Currently, we have 28 scholars who we are able to provide support throughout their 4-year secondary education journey. This is an investment of approximately $77,832, and it covers not only their tuition expenses but also termly psychosocial support and shopping supplies. We believe that providing these essentials contributes to creating a conducive learning environment for the girls and young women we support.

In addition to the basics, our scholars also receive career guidance and soft skills development. We understand that education is not just about grades but also about holistic development, and we are committed to ensuring that our scholars have the tools they need to succeed in their chosen careers. Our program includes career shadowing and mentorship, which exposes our scholars to various career pathways and helps them make informed decisions about their future.

We are proud of our Alumnae, Whitney Akuom, who is a reflection of the impact of our program. Whitney's journey is a testament to the power of education to transform lives. We are currently in the process of onboarding our 15 new scholars, and we look forward to journeying with them for the next four years to amplify their voices through access to education.

We are grateful for the continued support that enables us to keep more girls in school. We believe that education is a tool for social justice and gender equality, and we are committed to ensuring that more girls and young women have access to it.

In solidarity with girls,

Akili Dada
