Kisumu Children Trust, a small UK charity established in 2002, supports and cares for orphans and severely underprivileged children through education and into a productive vocation, free from charity.
How do we do this?
We’re helping our children achieve their best at school!
In Kenya, the Kisumu Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) test takes place at the end of Primary School (typically 14 years old). Our graph here shows that our cared-for children, with our love and support, are achieving better KCPE grades over time.
Making the Most of Secondary Education
The career pathways of our over-18s (to date) is shown below. These figures are significant, given these young people are some of the most deprived in an already poor district:
Vocational Training: 12
Employment (including self-employed/own business): 32
