Kenya Wezesha Education
Millions of young people in Africa lack access to quality education. Education is one of the most effective ways to move families out of poverty and into a brighter future.
Speroway’s Wezesha Education program empowers motivated and bright young people living in poverty who are high academic achievers, but whose families cannot afford their education. We provide scholarships and support so that they can successfully complete their secondary and university education, developing their talents and aspirations.
We aim to empower motivated young people to use their skills to help others and make a difference in their communities – to be the next generation of role models and leaders.
Students selected for the program are bright, talented young people who are determined to use their education to benefit the lives of others.
Through the program, young people will develop their leadership skills and use their education to improve the lives of others in their communities and country.
The program provides support including,
- Scholarships: scholarship recipients receive financial support for tuition, uniforms, books and school supplies, and stipends.
- Mentoring and Training: scholarship recipients receive year-round mentoring, career counseling, leadership development, and other life skills training.
- Community Giving: scholarship recipients demonstrate strong leadership qualities and a deep commitment to improving the lives of others and being an agent of change in their country.
- Community Networking: scholarship recipients are connected through a network of support focused on long-term life skills training, leadership development, and community giving.
It is proven that education is an effective path out of poverty, particularly for women. Meet one of our scholarship recipients!
Lydia is a 15-year-old student who is in grade 10 because of a scholarship she received last year.
In Lydia’s words,
“I come from a family of five, two parents and three children.
My parents farm a small piece of land, but it’s hard because of inadequate rain and crop disease.
My dream in life is to become a newscaster, because I would be able to change the lives of many people, to help them dream.”
“I am a girl, a girl who is determined, a girl of her words, and also a girl wonderfully made.”
Help us empower young people like Lydia and give the life-changing gift of education today.
