Challenge

Many bright and eager students in the rural villages of Kenya have qualified to attend secondary school but are unable to do so because they and their families cannot afford the school fees. Without the necessary financial resources, these intelligent and hard-working students would languish in their villages, devoid of hope for a chance to escape the cycle of poverty that persists in rural Kenya.

Solution

Kenya Keys has sponsored students in rural Kenya for ten years, supporting over 300 students. Our Kenyan Board of Directors reviews applications from qualifying students and grants sponsorships for the students with the greatest need and potential. With financial support, these students are ready to conquer every challenge that comes their way. Your financial assistance opens doors for these students to change the future-for them, their families, and their villages.

Long-Term Impact

Completing a secondary education empowers students to go on to college, to secure higher income jobs, and to significantly raise educational expectations in their families and villages. Educating students in this region will also arm students against the lures of terrorist groups who prey on the poor and uneducated. Educating these students, especially girls, will significantly improve quality of life and general wellbeing for the students themselves and their future children.
