Keeping Girls Educated After COVID-19

Girls in Makindu
Girls in Makindu

Keeping girls in school is crucial for long term change in Kenya and specifically the Makindu area where we serve. Since the COVID-19 lockdown, schools haven’t been in session. Because girls carry a lot of the responsibilities in their homes, it will be easier for them to stay home even after schools open up again. If the girls don’t have proper supplies to attend school and the right psychosocial assistance, they may not ever go back. Additionally, the lockdown has caused many kids around the world and especially in Kenya to be in close corners with abusers. Although the laws against child abuse are becoming more strict in Kenya, during the high stress uncertain time of COVID-19, we can’t help but imagine that there have been some very hard times for the children regarding a safe place to be. Any donation you make can help us help these girls. We want to keep them in school so they can break the cycle of poverty they have been born into. It is our mission to be able to serve as many children as we can and we can’t do it without you. Thank you.
