WHO WE ARE
Dr. Kakenya Ntaiya is a leading advocate for girls’ education & empowerment. Surviving female genital mutilation & avoiding an arranged marriage as a child, Kakenya went on to become the first woman from her community to go to college in the US. She founded Kakenya’s Dream to continue paving the way for the next generation of women leaders in her community.
Founded in 2008, Kakenya’s Dream leverages education to empower girls and transform rural communities. We believe every girl, no matter where she is born, deserves a chance to dream, learn, and achieve her full potential.
WHERE WE WORK
The rural communities we serve are some of the most marginalized and underserved in the world. 80% of women undergo FGM, over 50% marry before age 19, and just 17% finish primary school.
At Kakenya’s Dream, 100% of girls finish school and live free from FGM and child marriage.
Help educate girls so they may learn, grow, and lead. Every gift to Kakenya’s Dream supports transformational programs that empower girls from underserved rural communities.
Sign up for our newsletter to hear the latest news and updates from Kakenya and the girls. We'd love to keep you updated in the loop so that you can dream with us.
