Because education is the foundation for future success.
Although school in Kenya is subsidized by the government up to grade 8, high school is still too expensive for most impoverished Kenyans. The Scholarship Program provides qualifying CFK participants and community members with funds to cover up to 100% of the tuition fees for all four years of high school.
More Than Just a Scholarship
CFK provides an intensive three-month leadership training curriculum for scholarship recipients, which prepares them for the challenges of life after secondary school.
Social enterprise training is also available for civic-minded youth through a partnership with Ashoka East Africa. Here youth learn development and entrepreneurial skills from established activists, business people, and other professionals.
