Why the Dare to Dream Scholarship Fund?
Many girls who attend our events at some point stop attending school because their parents need them to start earning money to help support the family. Often, this is when they are only 12 years old.
With the Dare to Dream Scholarship Fund, we want to take the next step in growing our project: we want to help girls who are in need of financial support finish their education.
This year, our dream is to help 3 girls who attended our event in Kenya start high school.

Who are we funding?
Juliette, Grace and Roseline are the top 3 students of their year at St-Veronica School in Nairobi, Kenya. Each girl scored an average of more than 80% on her exams this past year. We believe that if they can finish high school, these girls have a bright future ahead of them, so we promised that as reward for their hard work, we would pay their school-fees for the coming year.
Juliet’s parents work in small business selling mandazi (fried bread). Grace has 2 siblings and her mother runs a small shop and Roseline’s mother has a small grocery shop.

What does it cost to attend school in Kenya?
Attending school in Kenya costs 600 euro per child per year. The families of these girls are struggling to afford their school fees, and we’d like to help them.
