The Caroline Project provides a simple, direct, personal mechanism to sponsor deserving students, particularly young girls, with high academic and personal integrity through secondary school. All funds donated will benefit students who have little or no means of support for their secondary education, high quality academic records, and a teacher recommendation for academic integrity, personal strength of character, and overall potential.
Who? Eligible (i.e. end of primary, meeting criteria) young people in rural Kenyan schools. What? Support to pay for costs of secondary support plus an emergency support fund. Where? Starting in two communities Homa Bay (Lake Victoria area) and Sekenani (Maasai Mara area). When? Begin immediately to allow eligible students to enter secondary school in January 2011. How?Donate online by choosing from options ranging from a small donation to full sponsorship.
“...With each additional year of education, [girls] gain greater independence, are better equipped to make decisions affecting their sexual lives, and have higher income earning potential – all of which help them stay safe from HIV.”
