The Scholarship project was launched in 2015 after KidsCare Kenya identified that many of the households in the ‘HomeCare Program‘ were unable to pay school fees for their children. KidsCare Kenya and its generous donors therefore decided to help these young and bright minds by paying 99% of the school fees for their high school and tertiary education. There are now 33 motivated students brightening their future.
The household included in our ‘HomeCare Program‘ are very needy. The family heads include single mothers and grandparents of orphaned children. Our social workers inform the households heads on the importance of education and encourage them to send their children to school.
KidsCare Kenya goes a mile further into the brightening of these children’s’ life by supporting them through their post primary education. This makes the Scholarship project. Depending on the child ability and interest, they are guided into joining Secondary school or technical school.
To motivate our students further we organize a motivational day every holiday where we hold motivational talks for them.
