Why We Started
Secondary education is not free in Kenya. Although in 2018 the government has introduced some subsidies, it is still estimated that up to half the eligible children do not receive a secondary education due to the cost.
At the end of 2011 we established the Graduate Program in order to find sponsors to help our students through their four years of secondary education. In our first year we sent 13 graduates to high schools throughout Kenya. To date 53 children have qualified for the program.
Students qualify by obtaining a pass mark in their primary school exams and having displayed the type of behaviour, discipline and study habits, that show they have the right attitude to succeed in what is typically a very challenging environment for the children.
