Shine the Light Kenya... Helping make a brighter future for our children.
Our Vision
Our hearts are for Kenyan schools...
Vision Statement
To equip public schools in Kenya with tools needed to enable an environment
conducive to learning resulting in high academic achievement.

Our Mission

Shine The Light Kenya was established after identifying the gap in academic achievement between private primary schools and rural public schools that has been created due to economic disparity.

The responsibility of equipping students for learning in public rural schools has been given to parents or guardians. Most of them are laborers who depend on daily wages and can barely put food on the table.

These students are eager to learn but they lack almost all of the basic necessities and therefore their performance is greatly affected. This results in poor performance in the national primary schools final exams. This means that they don't qualify for high school.


Here is a list of these children's most urgent needs:

  • Clean, running water
  • Feeding programs
  • Proper toilets to replace filthy pit latrines
  • Functional, comfortable and lockable desks
  • Books, backpacks, pencils and erasers
  • Electricity
  • Shoes
  • Uniforms
  • Sports equipment
  • Feminine care products
  • Renovated school buildings
  • Classroom floors (without potholes)
  • More teachers (committed and qualified)


Our goal is to ensure that each student feels safe and loved
as we meet their needs and guide them to a bright future.
