Seconadary School Scholarships


Encouraging the Best

The Secondary School Scholarships programme was created to give all children graduating from WYCF primary schools a fair chance in continuing to pursue an education and enhance their life opportunities.

The Challenges

– 3‐5% only of WYCF students successfully followed through to secondary school;

– Prohibitive costs related to secondary school enrolment and attendance;

– School dropouts in favour of engaging in petty trading or other forms of increasing the families’ incomes.

Our Solution

– Make sure every child takes their entry exams;

– Build relationships with local secondary schools;

– Provide a subsidy that covers the student’s fees, uniform and learning materials for the school year;

– Send the children to school and carefully monitor their attendance and progress.

The Outcomes

– 242 students – 153 girls, 89 boys – have benefited from this project since its inception and until December 2019;

– The percentage of WYCF students who continue through to secondary schools rose to 79%.
