Kenyan Urithi Education Fund
Transforming Lives Through Education
“It is not beyond our power to create a world
in which all children have access to a good education. Those who do not believe this
have small imaginations.” -Nelson Mandella
education as a key component for change and an effective, proven means of
addressing the core issues of poverty.
We partner with the Kithoka community in Meru, Kenya to
develop effective solutions to improve education
for those living in poverty.
Our goal is to alleviate suffering in Kithoka from
acute poverty found only in developing countries.
KUEF targets basic needs that directly affect one’s educational capacity. KUEF programs are data driven and focus on proven strategies that work even in the most challenging places.
Each project addresses specific needs as identified by our Kenyan partners.
KUEF projects work to remove barriers to improve education.
KUEF is a small organization with significant results.
Since 2003, we've built effective partnerships with the Kithoka community.
"Hand Up" rather than a "Hand Out," through this partnership, we’ve seen projects thrive. Together, we’ve reached significant goals.
Kenyan Urithi Education Fund (KUEF) is a
501 (c)(3) non-profit organization registered in Michigan and Utah.
