AICS Education Fund

This Fund is dedicated to getting children to school by paying the school fees of the selected applicants through vetting of the most needy cases. We vet and select the most needy cases due to limited resources. However, ideally most of the applicants’ merit to criteria for selection as their backgrounds are evidently poor.

EDUFUND BENEFICIARIES

Raising funds for Education Fund

10% of income from our Social Enterprise supports a Scholar-Leadership Program. This sustains young people in school and builds their skills in leadership and philanthropy through community projects they initiate.

Corporate Sponsors: We approach the various corporates, both public and private in Kenya and beyond to offer their help inform form financial support as part of their corporate social responsibility. These corporates, decide on their own the number of children they want to sponsor based on the yearly. This, we do by building cases on behalf of these children who are not able to ask for themselves. All the corporates that partner with us, are listed in all our media including this website.

Individual donors: We also approach the individual donors, by selling the stories of these need children. Indeed there are many who have been touched by their predicament and have offered to support partly or fully the school fees needs for these children. Equally we recognise these individuals by listing them in the donors roll found in the AICS website.

In the process, they are trained in project planning, fundraising and community engagement through a mentor. These are done with sensitivity to the school program.

Monitoring & Evaluation

Our interventions are evidence based and so we have put in place very strong Monitoring and Evaluation framework both for Edufund and The Scholar-Leadership Program. In Education Fund we have adopted the model of supporting the selected children all through their education so that we are able to track impacts of our interventions as opposed to one off support. We also follow closely the indicators set for success of this program such fully compliance in school attendance and performance through reporting cards. We also document the M&E results to help develop lessons learnt for future programs.

For Scholar Leadership programs, the monitoring and evaluation framework is adhered to ensure the community projects these scholars engage in, are impactful to the community and the changes can be evidenced, both in the community and in the mindset of the scholars.
