50 schools identified as centers as Kenya Education Fund set to help students

The Kenya Education Fund in partnership with Prudential Life Assurance Kenya has donated learning materials valued at Ksh 9.3 million to 50 schools across Kenya, to benefit 15,000 secondary school students from under-privileged families. This comes in the wake of government’s recent announcement that has delayed the re-opening of schools till January next year. The Kenya Education Fund is a non-governmental organization that gives high school scholarships to financially challenged students.

The beneficiaries will receive printed learning materials distributed through 50 schools across the country. Over 11,250 students in Form 1,2 and 3 will receive reading and revision materials while 3,750 Form 4 learners will receive revision materials to prepare for the national exams.

The two-month project will also provide sanitary wear for more than 4,000 female learners

“Education is an important investment by any community in its people and we appreciate the hardships that students have to endure daily due to the closure of schools which compromises their ability to keep up with their education especially during this time of Covid-19,” said Prudential Kenya Chief Executive Officer Mr Raxit Soni.

He added that the project is supported by Prudence Foundation, the company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) arm.

KEF Country Director Dominic Muasya lauded Prudential saying the gesture will make a significant difference in the lives of thousands of high school students lacking access to virtual learning opportunities.

“The beneficiaries of this project hail from some of the most vulnerable communities grappling with the harsh impact of the coronavirus pandemic on social life Improving learning outcomes is crucial in ensuring that students in such places are not left behind,” stated Muasya.

The following schools have been identified as distribution centres. Any high school student can walk into any of these schools and get a book plus sanitary towels. The students do not necessarily have to be students of that school. This activity will kick off tomorrow Wednesday 15, 2020.
