A country needs educated people if it is to progress economically and socially. In a country where fees have to be paid for nursery, secondary and further education, the poor, and especially children without parents, have no hope of completing (sometimes even starting) their schooling
More and more, KOFUP finds its funds being used to pay for children’s and young people’s education.
KOFUP, through the Pandipieri Healthcare Programme, is funding many young people through secondary or further education, including:
- Florence, who is in form 3 of secondaryschool and wants to be a doctor
- Denis, who is about to finish form 4 (last year of secondary) and wants to be an engineer
- Victor, who is studying law in Nairobi
- Fred who has just finished his training to become a clinical medical officer
