BOOKS! Campaign 

Kenya's primary schools receive 35-50¢ per child per term for textbooks
and class readers.

Total government support for schools = $1.90 per child per year
Cost of one Math book = $6.50

The problem is in the math.

BOOKS! campaign is dedicated to supplying critical learning materials for our 23 partner schools. Your contributions make a visible difference. Performance scores are rising. Enrollment has increased. Girls are staying in school. We are helping to improve the futures of an entire generation.

This year, we target core subject textbooks: MATH, SCIENCE and ENGLISH.

All donations through May 15th will be dedicated to this special BOOKS! campaign.

Our goal: 10 copies of core subject textbooks per school

Your help will make a world of difference for Kendu Bay children.

 

Girls Empowerment

WHAT WE DO
We provide a comprehensive girls health and education program in local primary schools.  Our mission is to improve school attendance by eliminating the cause of school dropout and teenage pregnancy.  Through Girls Club education and Dignity Kit supplies, this program has reduced pregnancy and dropout from 240/girls per year to ZERO in the 23 primary schools we serve.

THE SITUATION
Lacking money for underwear and sanitary supplies, adolescent girls stay home during their menstrual periods.  Falling behind in their school work, girls feel discouraged and drop out of school.  Before KSHP, nearly 70% of the region's girls did not finish grade eight.  Outside of school's environment, girls are cut off from receiving critical health and AIDS education and are pressured for early marriage.  AIDS prevalence among girls in this district is 25%, compared to the national average of 6.7%.


HELP GIRLS STAY IN SCHOOL


WHERE HELP IS NEEDED

SUPPLIES: DIGNITY KITS for adolescent girls
Target population: 1,950 adolescent girls at 23 partner schools

GIRLS CLUB EDUCATION
Target population: 4,800 girls in 23 primary schools, grades 4-8 

 


TEXTBOOKS:
Population served: 11,500 students at 23 primary schools

Students attending our target schools lack basic resources to develop reading proficiency. Textbooks empower the economic and social futures of these children.

BY THE NUMBERS
- 100% of adolescent girls at 23 schools receive personal 'Dignity Kit' supplies.
- 100% partner schools participate in girl child program development and teacher training.
- Teenage pregnancy and school dropout reduced from 240 girls/year to ZERO in 2015.
