Mission of Kakenya’s Dream
Kakenya’s Dream leverages education to empower girls and transform rural communities. It believes every girl, no matter where she is born, deserves a chance to dream, learn, and achieve her full potential.
The purpose of the project is to train 3,500+ youth in sexual and reproductive health and leadership skills, as well as to expand Kakenya's Dream’s Health and Leadership Training program through a new peer-to-peer component.
Why We Love This
We love this project’s focus on empowering young Maasai girls who are at risk for Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting and early marriage to stay in school, learn about sexual and reproductive health, child rights, and life skills through girl-centered programming.
