Up to 80% of teenage Kenyan girls don't have the opportunity to attend secondary school exposing them to high-risk situations including child marriage, prostitution, abuse & extreme poverty. Seed of Hope nurtures students to reach their potential through training & counseling. Graduates are supported to set up their own small business as a step towards independence. Since 2002 over 1000 girls have graduated, about 82% of whom earn above minimum wage through self-employment or employment.
Our full training and counseling program is complimented by a feeding program and income generating activities which teach the girls how to be self sufficient and help to support the centres.
Seed of Hope has the potential to enable many girls to gain financial independence, employ others, pay for siblings' education & improve living conditions for their families. These are all realities we can see amongst our current graduates.
