Mission Statement

To increase access to secondary education for children in extreme poverty through merit based scholarships.

Description

One of the biggest barriers to ending poverty in Africa is lack of education. Many children are unable to go to school in most parts of Africa, because of the fee structure that exists.

Instead, they are forced to stay at home and tend to younger siblings or go out into the workforce. Unlike many countries in the West, secondary school in Kenya is not free. To continue on past 8th grade, a high school student ends up paying around $500 per year.

This becomes unachievable as the majority of Kenyans survive on less than a dollar a day, making it impossible to send their children to school. As a result, many students drop out of school.

Deborah Amoi Foundation (DAF) is committed to make education accessible to underprivileged students all over Kenya.
