Why we do what we do

Our efforts are timely to advance access to education and employment for vulnerable young people living in the coast of Kenya, through a long term holistic approach. Through Kesho Kenya, vulnerable children are becoming empowered and educated, broadening their experience of the world and realising their dreams – irrespective of poverty, ethnicity, gender, religion or special needs. Thus, they have the chance to break the cycle of poverty.
