Scholarships for Kenyan Secondary School Students
- Kenya is our newest programme. Our expertise in reaching remote and excluded communities made expanding into Kenya a logical extension to our work. First, we partnered with the Leigh Day law firm to help support schooling for vulnerable children in Laikipia North. This provided us with the opportunity to better understand the educational needs of the communities in this region, and in particular the local Maasai community who have lost their traditional pastoralist livelihood and yet still remain isolated from education and opportunity.

- Partner with a select number of brilliant, highly motivated young girls and make long term commitments to help them attain their leadership potential. Akili Dada canvasses for scholarship recipients in the poorest areas of Kenya.

The recipient must have received admission to a public or private secondary school that is recognized as such by the Ministry of Education in Kenya. The scholarship, in most cases, will cover 100% of the tuition, dormitory room and board (where applicable), and other associated costs, such as books, uniforms, travel, and a monthly stipend.
- works with communities in the rural Maasai Mara. The communities we work with are Maasai or Kipsigis, pastoral people who face significant challenges that threaten the way they live. This region of Kenya has the highest primary school dropout rate in the country, a direct result of poor educational facilities, the need for children to tend to cattle and goats, and the lack of educational and health support. Frequent droughts and flooding add to these challenges.
- Adopt a Village in Kenya provides quality education in communities where there is often no school. Our mobile health clinic and education initiatives address specific health concerns including HIV/AIDS. Alternative income initiatives include milking animals and a women’s beading cooperative.
