Project Report | Sep 8, 2017
Thanks to you, our program is growing!

By Kakenya Ntaiya | Founder & President

I hope you have had a wonderful summer! Our girls in Enoosaen continued with their academic schedule through the summer months, with a three-week holiday period in August. As they return for their final term of the year, I am thrilled to share some exciting news with you.

Last November, I spoke with more than 250 girls hoping for one of the 40 spots in 2017’s fourth grade class. Most of these girls would be the first in their families to finish primary school. My heart breaks turning any girl away, knowing that without our support, they will undergo female genital mutilation and early child marriage. This reality motivates me to dream bigger. As we look toward the rest of this year and into 2018, I am thrilled to announce that Kakenya’s Dream is launching an expansion campaign to reach even more youth with life-changing education and training through our three programs.

We are building a new K-12 school campus, tripling the number of girls we are able to enroll each year. Construction will begin soon, and our first class of 9th graders will enter our new high school program in early 2018. These girls will have access to high-quality secondary education, with state-of-the art science laboratories, a computer lab, and a large library. The campus will also include a youth-friendly health clinic, ensuring adolescents across the community can access vital services and resources. We will create three early childhood learning centers, one on the new campus and two in neighboring villages, giving hundreds of young children from kindergarten through third grade a solid academic foundation. This will be a locally-sourced, eco-friendly campus incorporating community members and local businesses in its construction.

As always, thank you so much for your support. Your gifts are truly changing the lives of young girls in Kenya and providing them access to quality education and a bright future.

With Gratitude,

Kakenya
