Youth Education

Education is everything in Kenya. However, if a student graduates, there is no guarantee that they will get a job, or go on to University. We began supporting youth in education in 2016, and now have 27 current students and 6 graduates. 

Youth Education

Education is everything in Kenya, and the best chance at opportunities out of poverty come when a child goes to school, however, the population of Kenya is very young, and even graduating from secondary school isn’t a guarantee. 100 Humanitarians International has sponsored 31 students in school, and 4 have graduated so far. Six will graduate in 2021. 

The students we sponsor come from families who are struggling to pay for school fees and feed their families. They are often girls at risk of early marriage, because they aren’t able to stay in school. We sponsor students from several different areas of Kenya, including Nairobi, Bomet, Nkareta, Ntulele, Talek, Suswa, and the Maasai Mara. We also sponsor 6 girls who are in a rescue centre, having run from Female Genital Mutilation and early marriage. 

We go further than providing school fees and supplies, however. When school is not in session, we have taken students on expeditions with us to learn how to build garden towers and implement sustainability projects. We have hired students to work for us on projects as well. 

Vincent, who graduated in 2018, has worked in a variety of areas. He was trained in sewing to help make the Days for Girls Kits, and now leads our Garden Tower team, building the systems for families in Bomet. This is in collaboration with The USANA Foundation. 

Fred recently trained for two weeks in Nkareta on how to manage projects at our training center, including gardening, chickens, goats and cows. Ndee, who is in her final year of secondary school, went to Bomet and met up with Mercy, also in her final year, to learn how to sew, how to build garden towers, and how to raise chicks from one day old. 

We want our students to go beyond in school education, and learn how to provide for their own families. We teach entrepreneurship and skills whenever possible.
