Happy International Day of Education! Nelson Mandela once stated, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." We at KGSA Foundation firmly agree and seek to address gender inequality and rising poverty rates by educating our girls. #EducateGirls
Women are the strength of our societies. We should never underestimate their capacity to rise. Our Alumni are a beautiful example of how hard work and determination can take you anywhere. Many have gone on to become teachers, activists, and community leaders. #KGSAWomen
"Against all odds, Kibera is also a place of hope, and it offers a lesson in bottom-up development that the world should learn from."
