Campaign 2016

'Our' girls dream of going to high school one day.

But the odds are against rural girls because their schools lack basic tools to teach them: subject textbooks.

KSHP seeks your help to tackle this critical need.

We dedicate this year's campaign to MATH, SCIENCE and ENGLISH books for our partner schools.

This special'Spring Fling' for BOOKS! aims to provide essential learning materials for 'our' students.

Please join us!


Welcome to the Kenya Self Help Project

OUR MISSION is to help school-aged children in Western Kenya overcome poverty through education and social empowerment.  Our programs are designed to improve school attendance and strengthen self-reliance.  We accomplish this through . . .

  • Scholarship Resources

Provide secondary school scholarships to motivated, hardworking students who have no other resources to draw upon. Priority is given to orphans.

  • Girls Empowerment

Monitor and financially sustain a structured Mentorship Program in primary schools. Girls’ Clubs provide a safe and secure forum for girls to learn critical life skills and coping strategies that help them resist and overcome impediments to continuing their education. An essential component is the distribution of sanitary provisions that ensure girls are able to attend school throughout their monthly menstrual cycle.

  • Primary School Resources

Work with school officials to identify and provide needed resources, such as textbooks, to improve performance and high school eligibility.

  • Water and Sanitation

Cultivate community involvement in the building and maintenance of new gender sensitive latrines and hand washing stations at primary schools.
