Scholarships - Studiebeurs

Basisonderwijs is in Kenia verplicht en is gratis. Vervolgonderwijs is niet verplicht en niet gratis. Dit betekent voor de meeste kinderen dat zij na de lagere school (primary school) geen onderwijs meer krijgen. 

Studiebeurzen

Na het basisonderwijs is het niet gemakkelijk om naar secondary school te gaan. Dit moeten ouders namelijk 100% zelf zien te bekostigen. Dus ook al ben je een goede leerling en zou jij het behalen van een highschool diploma kunnen gebruiken als opstap naar een universitaire studie, er is simpelweg geen geld voor.

Inmiddels ondersteunen wij 15 leerlingen door hun complete opleiding aan de secondary school te betalen. En dat maakt een wereld van verschil voor deze kinderen.
Wij willen u alvast voorstellen aan 11 van onze secondary school leerlingen. Stuk voor stuk zeer ambititeuze jonge mensen die -niemand uitgezonderd- van zeer arme komaf zijn en de nodige struggles hebben ondervonden. Sommigen zijn wees, of hebben nog één ouder. Sommigen zorgen naast hun schoolopleiding ook nog voor broertjes en zusjes. Een jongen leeft van Ksh 100 per dag. Dat is ca € 0,82... Onder het absolute bestaansminimum dus.

Het goede nieuws is dat ze allemaal ontzettend graag wíllen leren. Daar energie van krijgen. Iets willen betekenen 'later' voor hun family en hun community. 

Tijdens het werkbezoek (14-22 juni 2018) heeft onze voorzitter met hen kennisgemaakt en gevraagd of ze in het kort in hun eigen woorden hun verhaal willen vertellen.
