Building Brighter Futures: BWA’s Education Programs in Africa
Through our school fee assistance program, we pay school fees for hundreds of impoverished primary and secondary school- age children who otherwise would have no opportunity for an education. In addition, with your support, we have constructed schools, such as the Kipkeino Primary School in Kenya, and are nearing completion of the Logos Academy in Sierra Leone. In addition, we recently funded the construction of additional classrooms and a laboratory at the Kebeneti Secondary School in Kenya.

Students in Ethiopia benefited from tens of thousands of textbooks and reference books shipped to our partners there for distribution to schools.
