Kenya Education Endowment Fund


Welcome to KEEF

The primary mission of the Kenya Education Endowment Fund (KEEF) is to provide scholarships for very bright students from Kakamega County in Western Kenya who do not have the financial means to pay the fees for secondary and post secondary education. Secondary school fees are $600 or more per year.

In 2020 we are supporting 120 secondary school students and about 30 students in post secondary programs.

Funds raised by this virtual event assist our Student Support Fund – providing KEEF secondary students with urgent health/vision/dental needs, loan textbooks, scientific calculators, etc. Donations also benefit the next Mentoring & Leadership group, selected from 2022 secondary grads. They are funded to return to their former schools, while awaiting admission to post-secondary studies, to assist any students identified as needing extra support. The grads then complete an online certificate leadership course during their first post-secondary year.
