Education Promotion

This program aims to promote education throughout the Samburu County. Education can ease other struggles such as poverty, war, ignorance, and disease. NLPF helps children from the poorest households to stay in school. The foundation’s funding does this by covering the cost of items they cannot afford such as stationery, school clothing, sanitary pads, and shoes. This encourages children to learn and boosts their morale. Many of the children are orphans cared for by grandmothers, or other relatives, who often have other children to look after as well. NLPF embraces fighting poverty by educating and empowering girls in rural communities, through transparent, accountable programs. By educating women and investing in their unbounded potential, we will create a more equal and just world. The education of women and girls is not only essential to achieving gender equality but also to address the full spectrum of developmental challenges. Research shows more and more that education needs to be highly prioritized and is one of the most yielding investments a nation can make.
