The Unique Gift

KIANDA FOUNDATION

Kianda Foundation has organized a Christmas Scholarship Drive! 

When you buy a beautiful household gift to give for Christmas to a friend or relative, you are contributing 10% of a scholarship in one of our training centers. Our target is to get 100 scholarships for 2023. 

By getting 10 friends to buy a  gift, you automatically become an ambassador of Kianda Foundation, working directly with us to provide women and girls with a secure future.

After you place an order, you will receive a text/ email with info on how to collect your gift.

The Cost of the gift is Kshs. 9,000/-

The new year 2022 was full of promise and expectation. The Covid-19 pandemic was sufficiently under control to enable people to recover from the effects of the pandemic and start resuming  normal  life. Educational institutions had been severely affected by wave after wave of the pandemic which caused schools to be closed for most of 2020/2021, so 2022 was a catch up year for many parents and learning institutions. 

 

At the Foundation, 2022 presented an opportunity to work more closely with our partners, learn more from them and strengthen our internal systems so as to fulfill our mission of providing quality and personalized education for women and girls. A novel breakthrough has been the introduction of counseling and  mentorship support for village business women. A core group of mentors is currently receiving professional training for a counseling certificate which will enable them to mentor women in small businesses so as to grow their business and face the challenges of life more confidently.

 

To end the year 2022, we have organized a Christmas drive to  raise the Kshs.9 million needed to enable 100 girls to undergo a catering course in 2023 either at Kibondeni College (Nairobi), Kimlea Girls Technical Training College (Kiambu) or Tewa Training Centre (Kilifi). Such vocational courses constitute a lifeline for many young people in Kenya, but quality hospitality courses are expensive, due to the practical nature of these studies. Yet this vocational training provides hands-on skills, permitting direct employment or the start  of their own businesses.
