BOOKS! Campaign 

Kenya's primary schools receive 35-50¢ per child per term for textbooks
and class readers.

Total government support for schools = $1.90 per child per year
Cost of one Math book = $6.50

The problem is in the math.

BOOKS! campaign is dedicated to supplying critical learning materials for our 23 partner schools. Your contributions make a visible difference. Performance scores are rising. Enrollment has increased. Girls are staying in school. We are helping to improve the futures of an entire generation.

This year, we target core subject textbooks: MATH, SCIENCE and ENGLISH.

All donations through May 15th will be dedicated to this special BOOKS! campaign.

Our goal: 10 copies of core subject textbooks per school

Your help will make a world of difference for Kendu Bay children.

 

Welcome to the Kenya Self Help Project

OUR MISSION is to help school-aged children in Western Kenya overcome poverty through education and social empowerment.  Our programs are designed to improve school attendance and strengthen self-reliance.  We accomplish this through . . .

  • Scholarship Resources

Provide secondary school scholarships to motivated, hardworking students who have no other resources to draw upon. Priority is given to orphans.

  • Girls Empowerment

Monitor and financially sustain a structured Mentorship Program in primary schools. Girls’ Clubs provide a safe and secure forum for girls to learn critical life skills and coping strategies that help them resist and overcome impediments to continuing their education. An essential component is the distribution of sanitary provisions that ensure girls are able to attend school throughout their monthly menstrual cycle.

  • Primary School Resources

Work with school officials to identify and provide needed resources, such as textbooks, to improve performance and high school eligibility.

  • Water and Sanitation

Cultivate community involvement in the building and maintenance of new gender sensitive latrines and hand washing stations at primary schools.
