Challenge

When Paul's mum fell sick, he dropped out of primary school to look after her and his younger siblings. A year passed and his dreams of becoming an engineer faded into the background. One in four children in Kibera drop out of primary school and do not complete their basic education. These young people join the already huge unskilled workforce competing for unreliable, low-paid work and the cycle of poverty continues. But Paul's story doesn't end there

Solution

Paul joined Turning Point's Transition Programme and his life took a dramatic turn. Paul has caught up on the education he missed. He is back in school and on track to complete primary school. His dreams of becoming an engineer are slowly coming back into focus.

Long-Term Impact

We further support children through secondary school or vocational training. We invest in each child's holistic development, looking to develop their talents and leadership potential, nurture their character and resilience and restore their hope for the future. Children who have come through this programme have completed primary school, progressed through secondary school and even university.
