Kenya Kesho School for Girls
Work has begun to construct and administer on a professional basis a primary school for girls. We are excited that the project is underway and we need you to partner with us to make it happen!
How are we doing this together
We are joining with donors, teachers, government officials, traditional authorities and parents in order to supply resources and support for girls at The Kenya Kesho Primary School for Girls, Kwale County, Kenya. Kenya Kesho will provide a quality education, with enough educated and trained teachers, updated books, desks and a curriculum that parents and girls themselves believe will be useful to equip them to thrive in the modern world.
As the gap between rich and poor continues to grow in Kenya, so do the numbers of children who fall through the cracks. Education for girls has been identified as one of the best solutions for reversing the relentless trend of poverty and is one of the most powerful tools to empower women within the family and society. Educating a girl changes her destiny, raises families out of poverty, and is a starting point for social change. Education is the key to unlocking potential for girls in our area of Kwale County. By providing education in a very rural area we are setting new standards for taking responsibility for the future of girls. If we don’t act now another generation of girls from coastal southern Kenya will slip through the net of education.
We need you! Why support this project?
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.
It may not be easy for you to know where to put your funds to work. There are thousands of charities operating in Kenya but not all can say every Shilling goes towards the project. As potential donors it is critical to be able to trust that your donation is well-managed and not wasted.
This project offers you the opportunity to maximize your giving by connecting with a solid and ethical project run by people who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to making a difference.
Kenya Kesho School for Girls offers an efficient and powerful way for your money to have a direct and positive impact on the lives of young girls.
Kenya Kesho’s integrity, transparency and accountability are beyond doubt. The Trust has been operating for over a decade and clearly demonstrates the lasting commitment that Sandra and Peter have made to improving the lives of those most in need.
The accounts for Kenya Kesho are published online.
There are lots of ways you can help!
