Kenya Leadership Program Update

Kenya Leadership Program Update

Global Education Fund is now in its third year of supporting the Kenya Leadership Program and is currently accepting new applicants! The Leadership program helps impoverished Kenyan orphans (particularly girls) to reach their full potential and enable them to improve the lives of others. The program includes student lead community service projects, workshops to build personal skills (finance, health, conflict management) and experiential learning opportunities-all aimed towards preparing students for success after completing school. The Leadership Program has continued in its efforts to develop job skills and entrepreneurial spirit in its scholars and now has 12 graduates. These graduates have pursued the mentorships they developed with members of Kenyan Universities as well as developed their own mentoring program for other scholars currently in the leadership program. In addition, several graduated scholars have entered into GEF’s internship program, two of whom are interning in the GEF Kenya office and three of whom intern with other organizations. The Staff at GEF and the Kenyan Scholars thank you for your continued support.

"When given the chance I can do something for the people and the community around me." Chimwani Mercy Mwende, GEF Scholar
