Help us to Break the Poverty Cycle for Kenyan Girls

Advantages for Kipepeo Girls

The main goal of the Kipepeo program is to help girls prepare for their future and create a safe place for them to learn, away from the difficulties of slum living.

This will be achieved by using the following process:

Appropriate Learning

The girls will be assessed and interviewed to define educational facilities most suitable for them. The program is not only for academically-skilled girls, but for all girls in high-risk situations.

Boarding School

Girls at Boarding School

Girls develop positive friendships in a safe environment at boarding school

In most cases they will board at a school, giving them peace of mind in well-disciplined surroundings so they can focus completely on learning and on their future.

At school, they will be both nurtured and challenged by caring teachers. In contrast to the slums, their peers will be fellow students striving to achieve rather than idle teenagers getting into trouble.


As many of the girls will be orphans, or from high-risk backgrounds, they may not have family support.

A Tenderfeet representative will meet with them regularly at their school and always be available for counselling and support.


On a regular basis Tenderfeet representatives will review the girls progress with the school, and ensure the schools are looking after the girls’ educational needs and physical well-being.

After School

A program is being developed to assist girls once they finish the Kipepeo program to help them find employment, or continue on into further study.
