Challenge

Whilst primary school in Kenya is free, secondary school is not,and so even the most promising & bright kids from poor background can miss out on secondary school.Our aim is to provide sustainable support to these kids to take them through to the end of secondary school and beyond.We are currently raising money for next year's fees,ensuring that we grow in a way that does not let any of our kids down in the future.We are currently supporting 25 kids,but there are many more that need our help.

Solution

The additional funding will give more kids an opportunity to access education,provide them with a different outlook on what their lives may have on offer for them. This will open up an opportunity, that otherwise would remain inaccessible.

Long-Term Impact

The project aims at giving the children from disadvantaged back ground a right to education, giving them an opportunity to reach to their full potential.
