Our Sponsor a Student program provides high school scholarships to the region's top-performing orphaned and disadvantaged youth.
Scholarships provide school fees, room and board at high-ranked county and national schools. Students also receive mentoring & home/school visits, life skills education & leadership training and medical & personal support integral to helping them be socially and academically successful.
Our Girls Social Empowerment program partners with local schools where program-supervised Girls' Clubs are a vehicle for instruction and skills development. Weekly meetings and inter-school debates build girls' self confidence and decision-making skills and provide health and AIDS prevention education. To reduce absence during monthly menses, girls receive 'Dignity Kits' containing underwear and locally-made reusable sanitary supplies.
Our Primary School Resources program provides critical resources to partner schools. Textbooks improve student performance and high school eligibility. Construction of gender-sentative latrines secures girls' privacy during monthly menses.
Community partnership and participation are integral to every program.
