Education 2022 - Lead, Inspire, Make a Difference

Education 2022 - offers to those living in poverty, including orphans, and vulnerable children the opportunity to attend school. With financial assistance children from ages 3 thru adults are given school support fees in order to receive an education. Our purpose in supporting these children and families is to give consistent educational opportunity in order to one day remove themselves from the poverty they are living in. Our program consists of monitoring our students each term with report card reviews, counseling, workshops and activities to lead them to realistic goals. We stay connected to the parents, teachers, and the schools that each student attends and have a working relationship with all. Everyone is held responsible and accountable to the educational endeavors that we (HFLW) and sponsors financially support. We want to Lead, and Inspire, so that they too can one day Make a Difference!

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organization's goals are to continue to offer the opportunity for children that are orphaned, vulnerable and those living in extreme poverty to reach their dreams of continuing education. We believe that when we are consistent in our endeavors, hands on with our guidance, and personable with our service to the students, their families, and the school/teachers involved in the program everyone can be successful. Our aim is to show the way out of poverty through education.

Strategy for success is simple! If you can't measure it, you can't manage it so we opt to stay smaller in nature so that we can spend ample time with each child. Families are included in the process, along with the schools and teachers. We travel yearly at our own expense as volunteers to visit with the children in the program. Each child is monitored to make sure that all measures are taken to help them to succeed. We have a counselor on staff in Kenya to work with each student during school break times to ensure that they are doing well emotionally and mentally. We teach, support, motivate, and encourage each child to do their best. We guide them realistically so that the goals that they choose as they move into adulthood can bring them to a place in life that they will be safe and free from the struggles of poverty. We hold each student, their parent/guardian, schools they attend, and their teachers accountable and responsible for their success by staying in touch several times a year when not in the country to monitor hands on.

To be consistently capable in meeting our goals funds need to be more readily available. At times making ends meet can be challenging. Ongoing is always looking for avenues to raise funds and we try to do this with social media fund raising, marketing, offering products for sale and become affiliated with such companies as AmazonSmile now.

We have accomplished putting in place a great outline of what our Education Program is and can be in order to help students in Kenya. We find ourselves making adjustments when needed as things change year to year. Times warrant change in order to keep up with those demands of the school system in Kenya, but yet we lend a great deal of knowledge to help the schools themselves encourage and motivate their students to do better overall. What we haven't done so far is to grow and be able to accommodate more students. Remaining small is a key factor but once we feel that things are running at optimum we would like to increase what we do, by incorporating new and different ideas for our students, and of course increasing the number of students we assist especially those in secondary and college level. This age group seems to be forgotten.
