Human for Education, a non-governmental organisation, is set to launch a new business for their partner school in Maasai Mara region, Narok County to provide financial independence.
The new business for their newest school, Orbolet Siana Hills Academy, aims to provide financial income streams to address disparities in education within the region.
According to the organisation, the business will ensure that the students and families have access to quality education, nutrition, stable teacher salaries, more recreational opportunities, and much more.
“We know that the families will be positively impacted by having to spend less at school and thus having more disposable income,” read part of the statement.
The business will be launched on December 7th this year with the aim of creating awareness of the work that Humans for Education is doing to alleviate poverty.
Humans for Education, which was founded by Daphne Pariser, began in 2016 with over 4,200 individuals in Maasai Mara region who have benefitted from the
revolutionary model that eliminates financial barriers to education and improving health outcomes.
Today, Humans for Education partners with schools in developing nations to create sustainable, culturally-sensitive businesses so they can generate their own income to provide for students’ needs and help build strong communities.
They aim to increase access to education, not only by providing income streams, but also by addressing health and sanitation concerns that can interfere with regular access to schools.
“Using our innovative, scientific data collection procedures we intend to scale up within the next three years to twelve new schools to reach ~14,000 children and parents alike,” states the organisation.
“We intend to scale our model globally within ten years to impact the 735 million people living in extreme poverty.”
