Paying school fees for girls in the rural area in Western Kenya

Paying school fees for girls in the rural area in Western Kenya

It is said that when you educate a woman, you educate a nation, education is a major contributing factor of empowering women in the rural areas in Africa.  Unfortunately every year girls drop out of school because of lack of tution fees.  Educating girls is a cause that I am passionate about  I would like to raise funds so no girl will ever drop out of school again because of lack of tution fees.

Girls from poor families face alot of challenges but one of the biggest issue that I wish to help them with is the  education.  The sad reality is that girls in the rural areas do not get the same opportunities as their counter parts living in the big towns in Kenya.  Despite education being free in public schools in Kenya some private schools make students pay school fees, those who get accepted to public school still have costs such as school uniform, transport, food, daily utilities and other school books, which their parents cannot afford. This results to girls dropping out of school or abandoning the idea of going to school all together.   The danger of this is that the young girls end up getting married early to avoid being a burden to their parents, thus the vicious cycle of poverty continues.

I would like to pay tuition fees for as many girls as possible and also ensure that they are able to get school related equipment.  I want to make sure that every girl gets an opportunity to get educated.
