Hope Creates Change

 “There’s nothing quite like knowing you’ve had a role in changing someone’s life,” says long-time EFAC supporter Steve Corman. And he should know. Steve has sponsored more than 10 students over the past several years - several of whom have graduated college. “Being a sponsor is one of the most important things that I do,'“ he says.

Nearly 50% of Kenyan students are forced to drop out after 8th grade for economic, social or cultural reasons. For extremely poor students who manage to continue, only 11% graduate from high school. EFAC students are defying the odds with 98% graduating from high school.

Your support can change a life. An EFAC sponsorship puts a high-performing, desperately impoverished student on a path to a sustainable life and career in modern Kenya. It’s the gift of a lifetime. If you prefer not to become a sponsor, you can become a valuable supporter by giving monthly through EFAC 360.

What We Do

 
 

We start with Access

In Kenya, only 11% of children living in poverty will earn a high school diploma. This is why the cornerstone of EFAC remains a 4-year scholarship to one of Kenya’s top high schools. We accept students from extremely poor backgrounds who demonstrate strong academic and leadership potential.

In 2018, we welcomed 90 new scholars to the program, bringing our secondary enrollment to 246 students. For the next four years, they will participate in a robust mentoring program and attend our residential Bridge to Success Workshops.

We Support Transitions

This year, 98% of our high school graduates qualified for a university or diploma program vs. 32% nationally in Kenya. We now support 190 students pursuing degrees at over 30 higher education institutions across Kenya.

EFAC’s transition program reaches beyond just the scholarship. Our Bridge to University workshop builds computer skills, financial literacy, entrepreneurship training, and mentors our scholars for success. University is a big change from high school, and we want our students to be ready for the challenge.

We Launch Careers

_____ of Kenya’s population is under the age of 35, and over 60% of those young people are unemployed. The Kenyan job market is competitive, and there is a signficant skills gap between what students learn in university and what employers expect from new hires.

EFAC is addressing these challenges through our Career Development Program. We expect every EFAC scholar to be employable when they graduate from our program. Education alone will not lift a child out of poverty; our kids need stable employment to truly break the cycle.
