The Solution

Education & Livelihoods

CFK’s Education Program focuses on a multifaceted approach to learning. In Kibera, because of the cost of formal schools, learning looks different from person to person. We focus on offering both an in-classroom approach to education as well as vocational skills training and work readiness initiatives.

The Girls Empowerment Program serves more than 2,000 girls ages 9-20 annually, and helps girls discover their personal leadership capabilities and build confidence through a combination of mentorship and advocacy efforts. With our help, girls have the opportunity for a thriving future.
