When One Big Dream Leads to Another



Every year on Enrollment Day at the Kakenya Center for Excellence, hundreds of girls are turned away because there isn’t enough space. Demand for our life-changing programs far surpasses the need. This just isn’t acceptable to us, so we’re dreaming again.

Over the next five years, Kakenya’s Dream will be growing our programs — including a new, K-12 campus — so that every girl, no matter where she is born, can learn, grow, and lead too.

Let’s dream bigger, together, for our girls.

  3. Triple the number of girls served
  4. Offer a rich STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) curriculum with state-of-the-art science laboratories rarely found in rural African communities.
