While primary education in Kenya and in many other SSA countries is free and open to all, secondary school is often cost-prohibitive. The costs drive down secondary school attendance to 26.2 percent of school-aged youth throughout SSA.
Since 2009, Hopeful Africa has worked with Boror Secondary School to pay the school fees of students who, despite immense economic struggles that often force absences, have shown dedication in school. Through this program, Hopeful Africa provides 62 annual sponsorships to deserving secondary school students. As the program continues to grow, so will the number of annual sponsorships.
Hopeful Africa has seen a 100% secondary school graduation rate of sponsored students to date.
