Education is a life-changer.
In Kenya, being able to read well and speak English can earn you a well-paying job.
But sadly, kids often leave the Kenyan government schools without even a third grade reading level.
And the village kids we work with may not even have great access to a government school!
LightHouse Academy was recently ranked 1st place in our district of 400 schools. We provide quality education for kids K-8, and sponsors students to go to government school for grades 9-12. We also help qualifying students go to college.
Many times in our part of the world, poor nutrition or family issues can keep a kid from going to school consistently. So we feed all of our students, and provide basic healthcare and clean water. Our social workers also do home visits to check up on family situations. Our teachers are Kenyan, so kids can learn in their native language, as well as Swahili and English.
