Research shows educated women create positive change for their communities and countries.

The Canadian Harambee Education Society (CHES) helps girls get secondary education by:

  • raising funds for scholarships for Kenyan and Tanzanian girls who gain Secondary School placements, but have no funds for school fees
  • placing CHES girls in boarding schools (wherever possible) to maximize their success
  • supporting special projects when donations are so targeted such as: building dormitories, enriched learning centres and services to support them
  • sending volunteers (often retired teachers) as agents in Kenya
  • managing donations and providing income tax receipts to donors.

CHES-TZ-writing-letters-to-sponsors2Help CHES educate girl students in Africa by donating, by sponsoring a student, volunteering to be an agent in Africa, or by assisting CHES staff in the Surrey Office.
