Kimlea is a social protection project and hence not a profit-making institution. This is because Kimlea was established to work with disadvantaged women and girls. Consequently, the main catchment area for Kimlea is the women and girls working within the tea and coffee plantations in the surrounding area. Furthermore, most of these women are the sole income earners within their households. As a result of this, Kimlea provides subsidized education and training complemented by personal mentoring that opens for them a window of opportunity to change their lives for the better. In addition, this practical hands-on education and training are provided in both long term and short term duration to suit the personal circumstances of each student.
This means that, for the College to keep providing these services to this vulnerable group, Kimlea relies heavily on the goodwill of the general citizenry.
There are various ways that someone with willingness can partner with Kimlea to play their part in uplifting their vulnerable neighbor ;
- Sponsor one or more girls for 2 years of college @ Kshs 52,000 (75%) per student per year as a full scholarship where parents pay Kshs 36,000 (25%) per student per year. The total training cost is Kshs 88,000 per student per year.
- Contribute towards our scholarship or endowment fund for assisting our needy students.
- Sponsor a program at our business center at Kshs 5,000 per student.
- Contribute to any other area of your choice.
We welcome partnerships at all times of the year and we feel privileged to warmly welcome you to the large and diverse Kimlea family.
