In 2008 GEF launched the Kenya Leadership Program in response to the complex educational needs of Kenyan orphans. Vast numbers of poor Kenyan orphans are unable to complete high school because they cannot afford the school fees.. Many of the poor children who actually complete secondary school remain trapped in poverty because they lack the skills and network of support to put their education to use. A classroom education, while critical, does not provide most impoverished orphans with the skills, experiences and relationships they need in order to find employment and reach their full potential. The GEF Leadership Program was specifically created in response to this challenge. It provides impoverished Kenyan orphans and vulnerable youth, particularly young women, with a carefully developed program, including: scholarships for four years of high school; skills training through skill building workshops, experiential learning opportunities, and community service projects; and a network of supportive relationships through peer support groups, university student mentors, and adult coaches and advisors. Partners in the Leadership Program include secondary schools, a Kenyan university and Kenyan non-profits. In addition, GEF is advised by a Kenyan business and civic leaders.
