Secondary School Dropouts
Did you know...
Almost 60 percent of children in sub-Saharan Africa between the ages of 15 and 17 are not in school. Most of them are girls.
How you can help
Education in Kenya is "free", but a child pays for uniforms, books, supplies, lab fees and exam fees. Child sponsorship keeps children, without means, in school. Eligible children are selected by a local board of educators and project staff according to their grade point average.60%-70% preference is given to girl children. One year scholarships may be renewed by current satisfactory performance.
