Mission

Kakenya is involved in every aspect of the girls’ education at KCE.

The Kakenya Center for Excellence seeks to empower and motivate young girls through education to become agents of change and to break the cycle of destructive cultural practices in Kenya, such as female genital mutilation and early forced marriage. These future leaders will improve their community, their nation, and the world. We challenge ourselves to come up with the best educational system for young African girls and we promise to share our model with others.

We believe in impacting one girl at a time, one community at a time, until all girls in Africa have the opportunities they need to learn and thrive as individuals and achieve their full potential. We start our mission in Enoosaen, Kenya, where we have built the first girls’ primary boarding school.
