In Kenya, high school is not free. KEF provides disadvantaged students, and their schools, with resources and support for them to improve their communities and break the poverty cycle.

In Kenya, high school (grades 9-12) is not free. On average, one year of boarding school costs $1,000, putting it out of reach for the vast majority of families.

KEF's has enabled thousands of these students to graduate high school and transition to higher education with 4-year boarding scholarships and Life Skills and Career Coaching seminars. 

In 2020 however, Kenya's school year was cancelled due to COVID-19 and students were forced to stay home, increasing the risk of pregnancy and sexual violence for girls.  

In addition, virtual learning  is not an option for over 80% of Kenyans who don't have internet access. 

In response, KEF is:

*Working to ensure that students can return to the classroom in 2021 when it is safe to do so 

*Providing students and their schools with life-saving Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) like masks, hand sanitizer and soap

*Providing over 20,000 young girls with sanitary pads

*Distributing more than 25,000 printed KEF Workbooks that contain a year's-worth of curriculum and exams by grade level
