Kenya Education Fund
Children in Kenya face enormous difficulties in getting an education. Secondary school attendance is not funded by the government. The students must pay about $600 each year to attend school, but most rural, nomadic families earn less than $300 annually. Moreover, sending a child to school deprives the family of his or her labor. Girls are less likely than boys to be educated and are often married off at an early age. In addition, HIV/AIDS has left many orphans to be raised by relatives, who can ill afford to pay more school fees.
The Kenya Education Fund (KEF), which was formerly known as the Nomadic Kenyan Children’s Educational Fund (NKCEF), provides high school scholarships to needy children in all eight provinces of Kenya. We currently support 500 students in more than 240 high schools and universities across the country. Students are chosen for their academic potential, motivation, need, and desire to work for the betterment of their people. We provide funds for tuition at high-quality boarding schools in addition to books, uniforms, mosquito nets,sanitary products, allowances for field trips, math equipment, and tutoring when necessary. We monitor the students’ performance to ensure that they continue to take full advantage of their educational opportunities.
An educated person has the potential to go on to university and a good job; they can also serve as an invaluable village resource, as a reader, a negotiator in markets, and an advocate for their people in a rapidly changing world.
Kenya Education Fund is classified as a 501(c)(3) organization. Click below to view our most recent independent audit and IRS Form 990.
