WHY IT MATTERS
The Hanne Howard Fund is a hands-on, family-oriented grassroots charity that works directly with vulnerable children and youth in Kenya to help transform their lives and achieve self-reliance through education, compassionate care and skills training.
Vulnerable and orphaned children living in slums are especially susceptible, exhibiting poorer health and nutrition, substandard living conditions and lower levels of academic performance due to extreme poverty. Children from poor households, particularly the girls, often can’t go to school because they need to stay home and help their families survive. More than 70% of out-of-school children worldwide live in sub-Saharan Africa, over half of whom are girls.
To address the issue of poor educational standards in the public system, we send all HHFL primary students to a private school called St Nicholas in Nairobi. This ensures that the children gain a solid academic foundation to improve their chances of being invited to attend a quality secondary school and further their academic readiness. The children are bused to and from school to ensure their safety.
There are 55 students who need your help to secure their continued education in a quality Kenyan primary school. Your redemption sends one of these children from the slums in Nairobi, Kenya to primary school for a day.
