According to the Kenyan Tea Development Agency (KDTA), education is the best tool for improving the socio-economic livelihoods of communities in Kenya. It’s easy to see why; learning new knowledge and skills can help the next generation to get better jobs, start businesses of their own, and change societies for the better.
But in Kenya, while the government now supports all schoolchildren through primary school education, secondary school fees are still prohibitively high for many students. To help level the playing field, we’ve partnered with the KTDA over the years to fund secondary education for students in our tea-producing communities. Our sponsorship has helped over 100 students who would otherwise not been able to pursue their education — giving them a chance to work their way up to a brighter future.
