Kenya Kesho’s ideal world is a place in which all children realise their full potential in educational and leadership qualities. We ensure that children and adults are involved in all aspects of our work so that there is a beneficial contribution to the community in general. Basic learning and life skills are vital for children and adults to contribute to the development of the communities.
Kenya Kesho works with children, their families, teachers and community elders to implement programmes at the grassroots level in education, hygiene, environment and water & sanitation projects.
Possibly the best chance of empowering children and young people – enabling them to change their lives for the better – is to provide them with the basic elements of education.
‘Education is not preparation for life, education is life itself’. John Dewey
An educated, informed child, in time, becomes an employable adult, who can, in turn, look after his or her family and break out of the cycle of poverty.
Over the years we have paid for secondary school, including books, uniforms, travel, exams, boarding and a small amount of pocket money to buy essentials and necessities for over 60 less wealthy children than ourselves. Kenya Kesho is also proud to have Iddi Shee Mwadarusi and Mwadarusi Kassim Omar as graduates through University. Iddi is a medical lab technician and Mwadarusi is a qualified teacher.
