Summary

Girls' education is not just about getting girls into school-it's about equipping girls with the life skills, knowledge, and confidence necessary to make informed decisions about their lives and future. By constructing and resourcing one of the 12 needed classrooms at Village Impact's new all-girls school, you'll help 600 vulnerable girls in Kenya to complete high school and gain the skills and confidence they need to realize their full potential.

Challenge

In Mai Mahiu town in Kenya, there are over 2,700 students attending primary school. There is no high school in the community. This leaves girls especially vulnerable to early marriage, teen pregnancy, and exploitation in all its forms. As a result, many girls here drop out of school permanently after grade 6. Your donation today will directly fund the construction and resourcing of ONE of these needed classrooms which helps us leap towards our goal of opening the school in January 2022!

Solution

Village Impact, in partnership with community leaders, parents, local government and YOU, aims to change the future for girls in Mai Mahiu. Together we'll provide classrooms, science labs, a library, washrooms, handwashing stations, and admin buildings. We'll deliver textbooks, chalkboards, desks and chairs, lab equipment and library books. We've already drilled a water source, and the school will have a dedicated psycho-social counsellor to help girls thrive and succeed in school and life.

Long-Term Impact

When girls are educated, they develop the knowledge, confidence and life skills necessary to navigate and adapt to our ever-changing world. They earn higher income, become active participants in the decisions that most affect them, and build better futures for themselves and their families. It helps break intergenerational cycles of poverty and disadvantage, giving all people-including boys and men-opportunities to fulfill their full potential.
