Education Scholarship & Youth Empowerment Program
More than 50% of adults in Dagoretti are unemployed and unable to pay school fees; for this and other reasons 30% of primary students are unable to attend secondary school. Furthermore, 70% of those who do attend are unable to finish.
We connect at-risk youth with the educational opportunities they need to break this cycle of generational poverty. Equally as important, R2T offers these students the emotional support necessary for them to succeed through life skills training and one-on-one mentoring . We act as a point of contact for the school administrators and meet with teachers on a regular basis. We guide and mentor our scholarship students as they work to achieve success. We create a trusting and safe environment and ensure that they build meaningful and healthy relationships with caring adults.
Our scholarship students:
• receive quality, consistent and uninterrupted schooling
• sustain competitive grades
• develop necessary basic life and interpersonal skills
• receive recognition for good conduct by teachers and administrators
• are prepared for university and/or workforce both emotionally and academically
