Each year many of the children who complete primary education cannot afford secondary school fees and all the associated costs such as school books and stationery, uniforms and transport to and from school. Donations raised through this fund will now give these young people a chance to further their education. It will go a long way to improving their lives and their futures.
The fund is set up under the Ewaso Lions project. Ewaso Lions works closely with the local communities to ensure that wildlife conservation is part of their everyday lives. Educating young people – the custodians of this wildlife – is a crucial part of our work. Enabling the youth of today to be empowered, inspired and nurtured means they in turn can make informed, educated choices that will benefit them, their families and the wildlife that they live beside.
