Research and programme experience suggest that building a decent school within a village and providing trained teachers, teaching materials, and a reasonable curriculum are often enough to bring most girls into school — at least at the primary level – and encourages parents to get more involved in the education of their children.


Children are particularly susceptible to various health issues which cause a number of problems; making them unwell, affecting their physical and mental development, and affecting their attendance and performance at school. For that reason Kenya Kesho is very aware that focussing on education alone is not enough.


The coastal forests of Shimoni form a thin strip of ‘coral rag forest’ and continue to be under threat due to encroaching human population, agricultural expansion, charcoal burning and commercial logging. Kenya Kesho will help schools and communities to understand the importance of reforestation and forest preservation.

Thank you!

Future plans

In January 2018 we will open the two ECD (Early Childhood Development) classes as well as standard one and two. All together 160 girls will be enrolled in Kenya Kesho School for Girls in January 2018!

However there are still 122 girls waiting for sponsorship. Sponsorship of Kshs 25,000 per annum for a girl will include their schooling, their uniforms and one solid meal per day.

There are lots of ways you can help!
