Breaking the cycle of poverty through education

THE PROBLEM: ACCESS TO EDUCATION

One of the biggest barriers to ending poverty in Africa is the lack of education. Many children are unable to go to school in most parts of Africa, because of the fee structure that exists. Instead, they are forced to stay at home and tend to younger siblings or go out into the workforce. Unlike countries in the West, public high school education in Kenya is not free. Thus, to continue on past 8th grade, a high school student has to pay school fees every year. This becomes unachievable as the majority of Kenyans survive on less than 2 dollars a day, making it impossible to send their children to school. As a result, many students drop out of school and education is placed beyond their reach.
