Every community has individuals who work the hardest and show the ability to succeed despite adversity. These individuals need a little push and they will prosper. Bidii Children’s Charity focuses on children and youth that have exhibited hard work, self-motivation and potential to succeed.
We give competitive scholarships and renew them based on performance. We use this approach because of three reasons:
If we support talent, self-motivation and hard work, the chance that these young minds will succeed is high.
When they succeed, they will in turn give back to their communities. The best part is they know where their communities hurt most.
If hard work is rewarded, a culture of hard work is cultivated.
Every year after the results of the standardised national standard 8 examinations are received, our tem in Kenya selects the students that have met the eligibility criteria.
