The rate of school drop-out in Tharaka Nithi and Meru Counties is enormous. With support from friends internationally, the foundation set-up a scholarship fund so that all bright but financially challenged pupils are able to attend schools of their choice in the county. The fund also includes partial scholarship to the foundations Empowerment centre (for primary level education) and Detra Africa Training Institute (for tertiary level education).

The above programs have been designed following previous work by the foundation between 2001 and 2012. The work was in collaboration with other NGO’s in Kenya such as Volunteers for Africa, Centre for Research in Environment Kenya among others. This work includes the following.
