Summary

Education is the greatest equaliser. It gives children, even from the humblest of backgrounds, a fighting chance in life - a ticket that we all aspire. This ticket, however, is not available to all children. Nearly one million primary school -aged children in Kenya are still out-of-school - the ninth highest number of any country in the world, mostly due to poverty (Oxfam, 2017). Affecto plans to educate 400 students every year. Currently 86 students are beneficiaries of the program.

Challenge

Thousands of students have seen their dreams of continuing with education ended for lack of funds to pay school fees. This happens every year when students are expected to transition from one level of education to another.

Solution

Affecto Foundation rescues students stuck in the villages, slums or children homes giving them a chance to continue with education. 86 students from poor backgrounds have in the past three years benefited from the Affecto Education sponsorship program.

Long-Term Impact

By giving students a chance to be in class, the boys and girls are rescued from potential dangers such as drug and alcohol abuse, crime and teenage pregnancy. The beneficiaries are able to keep their dreams and hopes alive. An empowered student is a great asset to his family and community.
