The new school year in Kenya begins in January. Expanding Opportunities supports 24 students in education with a waiting list. Though public education is “free” in Kenya, there are many costs involved in attending school. Each child is expected to have a uniform, school shoes, book bag, lunch, exam, and other fees. In some areas the public schools are extremely crowded or distant so private school attendance is necessary. In other cases boarding school is necessary. Expanding Opportunities assists with the purchase of uniforms, books, school supplies, school fees and/ or boarding fees based on an individual needs assessment.
Some students need only a uniform and shoes costing approximately $50.00; others need a full year of boarding school for approximately $800.00.
Education is power and creates long term sustainability. We offer the opportunity for you to be part of creating sustainable development by sponsoring an individual child or contributing to this effort.
For a limited time, through Global Giving's Gifts for Good, a set of handmade, hand painted metal bookmarks are sent to you as a thank you for a donation of $25.00.
