Ganze secondary School
Ganze subcounty, one of the poorest communities in Kenya, survives primarily on subsistence farming. The women in the community are relied on to plant crops, fetch water, collect firewood and raise children. In this region, polygamy is still widely practiced, and young girls are often married to older men with multiple wives to relieve the economic burden.
The little resources families have are invested in education for boys, who they believe have more earning potential. This means girls are often overlooked, which is another reason why marrying at a young age becomes the reality for girls in this area.
We began our partnership with Ganze school in 2010. At the time there were only 160 girls at the school, but the more we built, the more girls came. Today, the school's population is almost 800, and counting.
