Summary

Kenyan schools are buckling under the weight of growing student bodies and stagnating government funding. Hopeful Africa endeavors to partner with schools in Kenya, listen to their needs, and do its best to provide the financial support necessary to increase the quality of education given to Kenya's children. By providing teacher support and funding, student sponsorships, and materials such as books, computers, or electricity, Hopeful Africa is helping 2,000 students reach better education.

Challenge

Schools in Kenya often lack the resources to provide high-quality education to the country's children. Consider that while primary school enrollment in Kenya has increased 32% since 1999, the percent of government expenditure committed to education has only increased 1 percent (World Bank). And still, secondary school comes at a cost, which drives down attendance to 50% of school-aged children, disproportionately affecting girls (World Bank).

Solution

Hopeful Africa's programs are based on partnerships with school administrators in Kenya. Whether it's funding teachers, awarding student sponsorships, or investing in schools by providing textbooks, computers, electricity, etc., Hopeful Africa listens to the school and community leaders and fills the funding gap. The programs are flexible and respondent to the needs of each of Hopeful Africa's seven partner schools in Kenya. The result is a sustainable method of improving educational quality.

Long-Term Impact

If you educate a generation, they will reward you with peace, health, and prosperity. An educated child is more likely to secure a job, stay healthy, and contribute to their community throughout their life. This project positively affects the education of 2,000 students, helping them reach their potential and helping their communities achieve sustainable development.
