We guarantee every high school student in our program a college education, if they qualify. So students stay in our program for 8+ years. Because of poverty and morning chores for day scholars it can take up to 5 years to complete high school. The fifth year of high school costs almost the same amount as four years.  But those who repeat, all have gone on to College!

What is “harambee?”

Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2020 ‘Harambee’

Traditional Kamba Dancers.

Harambee is Swahili for working together. In Kenya this word refers to a gala fund raising event with food (often roasted goat), and soft drinks, speeches, song and dance.

  2. Raise high school fees for  girls.
  3. Raise funds for college scholarships.
