About Us

Resurge Children East Africa (RCEA) is a Kenyan non-profit organisation founded in 2015 by Lameck and Leah Odero who devoted their lives to ensure that every child, especially girls have access to quality education. Since then, we have been working to provide generous 4-years scholarships to bright but needy students who cannot afford to continue their secondary education. The scholarships are coupled with a comprehensive set of support services to motivate scholars. We are also focused on improving primary school learning outcomes through service-leaning, literacy classes and provision of school supplies to children who are educationally and economically disadvantaged. We are a group of people with difference professional backgrounds-from health and development to education and economics.

why we do this

More than 1.2 million primary school-age children in Kenya do not attend school and only 50% of primary school graduates will continue on to high school due to financial and social barriers. Education is the foundation that every child deserves and since our inception in 2015, we have worked to give every needy child the opportunity to go to school. We truly believe supporting a child’s education is the best way to help break the cycle poverty. By giving disadvantaged children the support and resources they need to achieve their full potential, our impact will have a lasting effect on those we help today, and for generations to come. We are grateful to our funding partners, which include trusts, foundations and to all our individual supporters and fundraisers. Your support is keeping over 200 children in school today and we are very thankful to all donations however big or small.
