EVENT DATE: Nov 25, 2016
In Muhuru Bay, Kenya, girls regularly drop out of school due to pregnancy, child marriage, lack of sanitary pads, gender-based violence, or the death of their parents due to HIV/AIDS. The very few girls that avoid these challenges and finish school lack funds for higher education and are not academically competitive for college acceptance.
That’s where WISER comes in.
WISER provide fully-funded education, clothes, safe housing, leadership training, reproductive health education, meals, and essential medicines to 120 students every year. WISER also hosts on-campus community health events, houses a sustainable garden for agricultural outreach, and provides 5,000 community members with clean water.
TASIS has been working with WISER ever since its inception in 2010 and is committed to raising $12,000 to provide a full scholarship for one WISER girl to complete her entire high school education.
