Education for Kids in Kenya - Giving Hope!

by Olalo of Hope - Kenya Vetted since 2015 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Site Visit Verified

Summary

Every child dreams of what they will be when they grow up, but when you live in extreme poverty, that's all they are, just dreams. A key to breaking the cycle of poverty is education. Many kids in Oyugis, Kenya are hoping someone will begin the dream with them by paying for their Secondary School (H.S.) Education. Others who were forced to leave school when their family could no longer pay tuition, yearn to return to complete their education. They can with your help! Give Hope-start the dream!

Challenge

Less than half of all children in Kenya attend school beyond the 8th grade. Why? Poverty. Over 50% percent of Kenya's population lives in poverty with families struggling to survive on less than $1 a day. The cost of education after grade 8 is out of reach for most and hope of a better life is too! Our Kenyan team gives great insight into the lives of many orphans and kids in dire need. Through their involvement, Olalo has been able to support many children's education through Secondary School.

Solution

Our Kenyan is team made up of local teachers, principals, soccer coaches and business owners who help to identify those students who cannot continue with their education due to their poverty. These established relationships offer built-in encouragement and hope to the student. The kids are motivated to study hard and appreciate the opportunity to fulfill their dream of a better life through education. Cumulative donations or monthly sponsors provide the funds for tuition, uniforms & supplies.

Long-Term Impact

Without an opportunity to complete a student's education, the cycle of poverty continues generation after generation. Today's student wants to improve their lives. They are motivated to make changes that impact their own futures and improve the community. For too long education beyond grade 8 wasn't even expected. For the most part, it's the same today, so when a child gets the opportunity to continue their education, they begin to dream big, work hard and begin a new cycle. A cycle of hope!
