About

Most girls growing up in rural areas in Kenya and Africa, do not complete secondary education due to various socio-economic challenges. Some of these social-economic challenges include poverty, teenage pregnancies, early marriages, FGM and  lack of leadership & mentorship programs.   

Elimisha Mischana Elimisha Jamii (Swahili for 'educate a girl, educate the entire community') Programme aims to raise wider awareness of these challenges and find solutions to them. Our goal is to involve the local communities in positively tackling the above socio-economic challenges, besides providing leadership, mentorship and long term monitoring to their girls to ensure that they successfully transition from primary-to-secondary school and actually complete secondary education.

Our objective is to see a 100% transition between the Kenya Certificate for Primary Education (KCPE) and the Kenya Certificate for Secondary Education (KCSE) schoolgirls in rural areas.

 'Secondary education completes the provision of basic education that begins at the primary level, and aims to lay the foundations for lifelong learning and human development' - The World Bank.

Our Mission

Ensure  100% transition rate between KCPE and KCSE for schoolgirls in rural Kenya.

Our Vision

Besides the issues of poverty, lack of school fees, teenage pregnancies and early marriages, there is a general lack of leadership and mentorship for young schoolgirls in rural areas. Most mentorship and leadership programmes are aimed at girls who are already in secondary schools, which misses out the important demographic of girls transitioning between primary and secondary school education.

Addressing this issue of gender disparity and equality in education is critically important for social and economic growth within these regions. Elimisha Msichana Elimisha Jamii recognizes that the whole community and wider society benefit when the girl child is educated. It is through education that a girl is first exposed to leadership, given a voice, given a chance to develop crucial lifelong skills that will help in her future career, in taking care of her home, community and country.
