Kenya is a poor country and whilst the Government undertakes to provide free Primary education, it is not yet able to extend this to Secondary schooling and this even applies to day schools as well as boarding schools.
Outside of Towns and Cities, secondary schools are by necessity boarding and annual fees are made up of tuition costs plus residential costs. Such fees have to be found by all students for the four years of the secondary curriculum that leads to the award of the Kenya Secondary Certificate of Education KCSE. Without KCSE, a student has little chance to progress to any further training.
What we do
We enable Kenyan teenagers from poor and broken families to complete their secondary education by paying their school fees without which schooling would be denied. Our funds to do this are raised in the UK from donations most often sourced from sponsors who are linked to a particular student.
SKET has three UK Trustees and two Kenyan Field Officers and is registered with the Charity Commission No. 1118914 and with an account at the CAF Bank.
