The slums of Kenya and Tanzania are home to some of the most deprived children in the world. Over 1 million children are missing out on an education in Kenya alone. Education can be the magic bullet that breaks the cycle of poverty. ChallengeAid’s aim is to offer an alternative or complimentary education to children living in abject poverty in the slums of Kenya & Tanzania. We provide an opportunity for them to thrive.
ChallengeAid and our partner ChallengeAid Africa work together to build Schools of Hope– a cross between a homework club, a youth club and a library, operating in the evenings, at weekends and during school holidays.
About our foundation
Get fit for a purpose
Get fit for a purpose helps promotes schools, companies and individuals to help make a difference by fundraising in their local area to help make an impact on the lives of others.
Schools of Hope
Our Schools of Hope operate after school hours, giving children educational support by providing desks, chairs, lighting and most importantly a good supply of up-to-date text books with responsible supervision in a safe and conducive learning environment.
Why do we do what we do?
Because we want to give aspirational boys and girls living in slum settlements in Africa the opportunity, through education, to become the citizens and leaders of tomorrow and not to be enslaved by poverty for the rest of their lives.
