Beyond a Moral Responsibility

Dr. Marangi MboghoBy Dr. Marangi Mbogho
Founder and Secretary

Investing in the education of young people in our communities:

  • First; education is a human rights issue.
  • Second; education has implications in socio-economic, cultural, political and geopolitical advancement of communities.
  • Third; lack, inequality or gaps in education breed poverty, radicalisation of youth and is a source of conflict among communities and nations.

In Kenya's Taita-Taveta County, students regularly get sent home for tuition arrears. Currently, the prices for basic food items have skyrocketed. Most of the poor rural parents cannot meet daily domestic needs for their families, let alone find the money to pay school fees.

The head-teachers cannot keep defaulting students in boarding schools because the fees structure is fixed. It cannot be adjusted to accommodate poor students. It is only the children of the middle class, business people and the political class that are in school - the masses have to fend for themselves.

Poverty begets poverty. It is the survival of the fittest. Supporting the education of youth is a quest against extinction itself.
