AFFECTO ONBOARDS COHORT 8 BENEFICIARIES

By Alice Gathe | Project Leader

Affecto Foundation is a non-profit organization registered in Kenya to offer scholarship opportunities and mentorship programs to secondary students across the country. The program is designed to create lifelong impact for individuals and communities, by providing academically gifted learners from underprivileged backgrounds access to quality education. In the academic year 2024, Affecto Foundation is embarking on a significant expansion of its Watoto Wasome program, aiming to welcome 50 new students into the program. This strategic move will augment the program's reach, bringing the total number of students in high school to 150 and those in higher institutions of learning (universities and colleges) to 68. This increase in numbers and impact naturally necessitates an increase in funding to adequately support the growing number of beneficiaries. To achieve this, the organization is actively pursuing a fundraising campaign through GlobalGiving. The funds raised will be allocated towards fulfilling various essential needs of the students, including tuition fees for the academic year, provision of students' uniforms, supporting their self-care shopping, contributing to school development fees, covering bus fare to and from school, facilitating termly mentorship workshops, enabling participation in The President’s Award program activities, and providing pocket money. Remarkably, despite the financial constraints, Affecto Foundation has already made significant progress, having successfully enrolled 39 out of the 50 intended new students into the Watoto Wasome program. The organization has received over 500 applications from across Kenya, underscoring the widespread need for educational support. The increasing number of applications underscores the urgency and importance of the Affecto Foundation's mission. However, due to financial limitations, the organization can only accommodate 50 new students at this time. These are individuals who, without intervention, would remain excluded from the educational system, facing daily hardships that impede their ability to thrive. In the midst of this busy and transformative season, Affecto Foundation expresses profound gratitude for the support it receives from GlobalGiving. With this partnership, the organization is poised to make an even greater impact, providing education and support to those who need it most, ensuring a brighter future for these deserving students
