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.
Kenya Kesho School for girls

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 is formed on ancient coral reef exposed by falling sea levels, leaving limestone rock and shallow soils. These coastal forests continue to be under threat due to encroaching human population, agricultural expansion, charcoal burning and commercial logging.
With professional help and funding Kenya Kesho will be able to encouraged schools and communities to have tree nurseries and be made to understand the importance of reforestation and forest preservation.
