Transforming Lives Through Education

aka KUEF   |   Ann Arbor, MI   |  https://www.kuef.org

Mission

KUEF recognizes education as a key component for change and an effective proven means of addressing the core issues of poverty. We partner with the Kithoka community in Meru, Kenya to develop effective solutions to improve education for those living in acute poverty. Our goal is to alleviate suffering in Kithoka by supporting local leaders with their educational, nutritional, and public health initiatives to improve educational outcomes. Our hope is that successful graduates bring their skills and newly acquired resources back to the Kithoka community to create self-sustaining growth and new opportunities for future students.

School-Based Feeding Program

In 2011 KUEF initiated the development of a school feeding program to provide enriched porridge at two local primary schools. Many children came to school having only a cup of tea for breakfast and then nothing to eat all day. Our Research Interns conducted baseline research that revealed, according to WHO standards, almost 38% of these primary school children were malnourished and, alarmingly, some were "wasting" or severely malnourished. This project was developed in conversation with school principals and staff at BLISS, Gichunge and Kithoka Primary Schools, and also with parents and community members.
