Our mission is to break the cycle of poverty in Kibera through investing in the education of the next generation of Kenyans.
Once you are trapped in this vicious poverty cycle, it becomes nearly impossible to escape. From an early age, kids living in extreme poverty realize there is little to no hope of ever having a path out of the slum. For many in Kibera, this means dropping out of school at a young age and turning to gangs, drugs, and prostitution. The poverty cycle then continues for the next generation of their family.
Eddy Mwangi, now a senior in college, has been overcoming odds against him his whole life. He was young when his father died and his mother was left with no job and 3 small children. Eddy and his mother have always known that education would be their ticket out of poverty and he has spent everyday of his life working towards that goal.
