A community that achieves change through its own effort will always feel more powerful and they will always be eager to generate more change. CHOICE Kenya’s journey to create more self developing villages has been gradual but manifesting good results.
The Community Based Education Trust Fund (COBETF) program is a practical experience of communities supporting education of their children in secondary schools through parents contributing more than $715 within a duration of one year.
Last year the community, with support of Marriott Daughters Foundation and CHOICE Humanitarian supported 36 students from needy families including 20 boys and 16 girls. More children are expected to join the secondary school education through this program this year.
