Education is the most powerful tool to improve the lives of girls and young women in East Africa. Girls who are educated become self-confident, strong, critical thinkers, and better decision makers.
They marry later, dare to dream, and take leadership roles in their communities.

The Kenyan government pays a nominal portion of secondary school fees. We place girls in day or secondary boarding schools for four years where they have three meals a day, electric light, and time to study.
