Masinga Girls Secondary School is located in one of the most drought-prone and poverty stricken regions of Kenya. The average household income is less than $1,000, making the $500 annual cost of high school challenging for many families.
One Girl Can partnered with Masinga School in 2015 to offer scholarships for local girls, starting with one girl in 2015. To date, there are over 100 girls from Masinga, who have received scholarships over the years.
This school needed a lot of help to provide a safe learning environment for almost 800 students. We identified a strong need for additional investment in buildings to alleviate overcrowding and provide safety and dignity for the students.
The building project was a brand-new washroom facility that allows over 300 girls to attain proper hygiene and safety.
