Mission of Flying Kites
In partnership with a cohort of underserved primary schools, Flying Kites is addressing the biggest barriers to learning for children in rural Kenya.

Our grant will support the expansion of the Girls United Program which provides a holistic school curriculum to ensure that every girl has access to the critical resources she needs to come to school, stay in school, and thrive in school. Underpinned by the unique G.I.R.L.S. framework (composed of Guidance, Information, Resources, Leadership, and Skill-building) and year-long curriculum this grant directly supports investment in 42 female teachers to launch and lead Girls United Clubs to address the biggest barriers to learning for girls aged 10-14, including early pregnancy and lack of sexual and reproductive health information.

Why We Love This
We love this program because it is transforming schools in rural Kenya by holistically investing in girls, providing professional development for teachers, and supporting healthy schools through meals, water, sanitation, and hygiene.
