Girls Club Debates Begin 

Representatives from eight Girls Clubs competed in their first debate: "Should girls be treated the same way as boys?"  The winners received paper and pencils for their school's club activities.

Debate topics require planning and research - and help girls sharpen their public speaking skills.

About Us

In 1998, a core of volunteer leaders in the United States and Kenya joined hands to mobilize like-minded individuals working to improve educational opportunity and family security for children in Kendu Bay, Kenya.

Kenya Self Help Project has identified fundamental areas where assistance from generous and caring donors can make an immediate and long-term impact to reverse the cycles of poverty while promoting self-sufficiency and community participation. We support initiatives for student scholarships, girls social empowerment and water. Programs are implemented by our management team in Homa Bay.

Kenya Self Help Project is an authorized 501(c)(3) public charity administered by an all-volunteer board of directors in the United States. 100% of every donation is applied directly to program services in Kenya.
