WE HAVE SEEN COMMUNITY SUPPORT AND INVOLVEMENT IN EDUCATION ESPECIALLY OWNERSHIP OF SUSTAINABILITY PROJECTS IN SCHOOLS

HOW WE DO IT

WE IDENTIFY THE PROBLEM

  • Low transition rates from primary to secondary schools and from secondary to tertiary institutions of learning.

  • 1 in 5 students that start grade 1 will not graduate grade 12.

  • With no meaningful education children fall back to their villages and end up working for less than a dollar a day.

  • And the vicious cycle of poverty will continue for generations to come.

WE IDENTIFY THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM

  • Families are poor and illiterate; and therefore parents are not able to support their children’s learning goals

  • Schools infrastructure including classrooms and desks are lacking or dilapidated

  • Teachers do not have instructional materials and are poorly equipped to support school curriculum especially in STEM.

  • Tuition fees for secondary schools is extremely high; beyond capabilities of more than 90% of parents.

  • School enrollment for girls is impeded by social cultural believes, teenage pregnancies, lack of sanitary/ hygiene products and facilities

  • HIV/ AIDS still remains a challenge to most families.

WE HELP IMPLEMENT LOCAL DRIVEN SOLUTIONS

  • Bidii Children’s Charity offers scholarships to children and youth that have exhibited hard work, self-motivation and potential to succeed.

  • We work to equip teachers with resources to enable them support the students who are already experiencing hardships due to their poor backgrounds.

  • We help schools and communities to install water tanks that will help in water harvesting during the rainy seasons

  • We provide economic and leadership opportunities so that women and other vulnerable adults can champion change
