Voice’s Elimu Tuitakayo: Kenya Influencing Grants

Deadline: 26 October 2018

Are you a national organisation, network or movement seeking to influence education reforms in Kenya? Do you firmly believe that a relevant education system remains the only way to break the cycle of underdevelopment and poverty in Kenya? Can our education system be more inclusive? Do you want to influence and change public’s attitudes towards proposed education reforms? Do you plan to work with a network of like-minded organisations, individuals and/or the unusual suspects to amplify the voices of marginalised and discriminated groups within the educational ecosystem? If YES, then apply for an Influencing Grant to help realise the potential a relevant education system has to increase the employability or income generating capacity of Kenya’s majority poor thereby enabling them to be employed or be entrepreneurs in their own right mitigating the high inequality levels in Kenya.
