Why we do it

Sub-Saharan Africa is the region in the world most affected by AIDS; due to the widespread epidemic the number of orphans left behind is staggering.

With the intense level of poverty in the area the main priorities for children are food and water. Because these basic human needs are a constant struggle to provide, education is rarely treated as a primary concern.

Although technically primary education is free in Kenya the costs of books and school supplies is often far too much for most children to afford. If a student completes primary school they must pay tuition fees to attend secondary school. University is out of the question for most children because even if they manage to score the marks they need to be admitted there are no funds to send them.  By providing the necessary resources for education we are giving children an opportunity to excel in the world and break the cycle of poverty and disease.
