The mission of The KURA Project is to improve educational opportunities for the underserved population of northern Kenya.
Laisamis District in Northern Kenya is one of the poorest areas in Kenya where 74% to 97% of the people survive on less than $1 per day. According to the Kenya Human Rights Commission:"Schools are insufficient, with enrollment of 25% of children in primary school against a national average of over 99%. Literacy and completion rates are also the lowest in the country".
By increasing school attendance, especially for female students in primary schools, providing the basic supplies, and sponsoring students through secondary school, The KURA Project seeks to advance the cause of education and future opportunity for this underserved population.
The KURA Project ensures even the smallest contributions goes a long way.
