Situation

More children in Kenya and Uganda are attending secondary school than ever before - but in rural communities many poor students face barriers to realising their potential. Providing high quality education in local schools is key to unlocking opportunity. However, lack of funds means that many schools struggle to provide the resources, learning environment and pastoral support that enables students to overcome challenges and flourish.

Solution

We invest in the foundations of a quality education: key learning resources, a stimulating environment and support for student welfare. We work closely with each school’s management to develop a bespoke programme of investment that is owned by that community. We believe that education goes beyond exam results, and focus on projects with the potential to make a long-term impact on the life opportunities of students.
