Keep Kids in School

Charity description

Keep Kids in School logo
The aim of Keep Kids in School is just that: to help kids that have lost one or both parents to keep going to school in the face of severe poverty.

We do this by fundraising and supporting the work of a small volunteer-run local NGO, APEED-Benin, in West Africa. We keep kids in school by paying towards their school fees, buying school books, stationery and cloth to make school uniforms, maintaining a project library and mentoring.

APEED Benin is unique – it was set up eight years ago BY students FOR students and has helped 100+ girls and boys stay in secondary school every year. It now has active supporters in UK, Australia, America, France and Kenya, as well as a dedicated group of senior education advisers and community leaders in Benin.

And it really requires very little from us to make a huge difference to these
kids' lives - £80 per child per school year.

Every penny we raise goes straight to helping these kids get an education. There is no lack of talent and determination among the kids and young volunteers involved in APEED; what they lack is some basic cash - this is where we can help!
