Resurge Children East Africa is working to ensure that every child, especially girls receives quality education. We truly believe supporting a child’s education is the best way to help break the cycle of disadvantaged. By giving them the support and resources they need to achieve their full potential, our impact will be a lasting effect on those we help today and for generations to come.
what we do
In Kenya, high school is not free and 50% of primary graduates will not join high school due to financial barrier. Until all children have access to a quality education, we will continue to provide a 4-year scholarships to bright but needy who cannot afford to join high school. The scholarships are awarded yearly to assist 2 students, most of all girls from Kisumu County. The applicant must have completed the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) in the preceding year and attained 380 marks and above. The scholarship cater for school fees and other associated costs such as books, uniforms and pocket money for the four year education. Identified as part of the programme, we host quarterly and annual mentoring sessions to inspire students to work hard and maximise their learning outcomes. We are optimistic to ensure that we help the poor, most of all girls by giving them an opportunity to obtain an education and resultant benefits including better education outcomes, improved chances to success in life, increased gender equality in secondary education and greater social integration.
Millions of children living in poverty miss out on the chance for an education simply because they can’t pay for the essential supplies that go hand-in-hand with learning. That is why our programmme inspires hope in children by providing them with the valuable school materials they so desperately need. We buy and or collect donations of uniforms, textbooks, notebooks, pens, sets, backpacks and delivers them to needy children who wouldn’t be able to attend class without them.
We train volunteers, provide books and support literacy programmes in most underprivileged public schools, creating classes where children learn and thrive. Our classes give students who are struggling with reading support they need to improve their reading skills, reading ability and confidence. Children we help might have fallen behind with their reading, lack confidence, or struggle with their fluency, comprehension or vocabulary.
The project helps our teachers to create an inclusive and supportive environment that will help nurture students’ sense of belonging, fostering a caring classroom community for student engagement and learning. It sets the stage for students to take part in the WE Schools service-learning classes to give them the space and opportunity to explore issues, develop plans for solving those issues and take action. It is a comprehensive collection of curricular, co-curricular and extra curricular programmes that are implemented at Magadi primary school in Kisumu.
