Though many East African kids attend school, there is limited learning due to a couple of constraints. Stromme Foundation therefore, supports infrastructure development, teacher competence development, local resources mobilization, and supply of scholastic materials.
According to UNESCO, over 18 million young people in East Africa have never completed primary school, and there are 4.6 million children out of school.
Poverty and political conflicts have made it hard for children especially in rural areas to receive a decent education.
Under primary education, SFEA has contributed towards class construction and renovation. Built infrastructure led to an improved learning environment resulting in increased enrollment and retention of pupils in school.
To ensure proper management of schools and engagement of duty bearers, we facilitate formation and training members of Parents Teachers Associations (PTAs) and School Management Committees. This has resulted into active community participation, improved school management, teacher attendance, increased enrollment, retention and completion rates.
