Shalom Hope Centre and School is a charity organization whose aim is to provide a meaningful education to underprivileged children in Kakamega, Western Kenya.We envision a world where the underprivileged are given the opportunity to get a better life for themselves and their families through education.

Since its setup, we have been taking the complete charge of assisting children from poor background in providing them with education. These kids lack the funds and resources to do so on their own.

Our mission is simple; help the young generation develop their thinking and creative skills through education. As a result, this will give them the tools to break the vicious cycle of poverty.

We would like to create a world where everyone from all walks of life can enjoy life with dignity, sufficient food, and income security to meet basic needs. We strongly believe that by having a proper education it makes it possible to reach these goals.


Kenya’s educational system suffers from a number of obstacles, despite the recent strides that it has made. Literacy levels remain low, especially in rural areas and 5% of children are not enrolled in school, particularly in rural areas. Many children are older than expected for their class level and there is a severe shortage of teachers.

Education is a right. It is also the most requested service, and key, to helping communities move towards peace and prosperity. Supporting education is a recognition of people’s enormous potential and the right to a better future.

Everyone deserves an education regardless of age or gender, religion or physical capacity, ethnic group or displacement through conflict. Education is essential if people are to participate in the life of their own communities

Kenya struggles to improve an underfunded school system with school reforms that promise changes in overall structure and curriculum design. The increasing cost of education is pushing the global goal of “Education for All” (EFA) beyond the reach of more and more children from poor families, leading to a steady increase in the number of dropouts. Most of the problems within the education sector stem from the general increase in poverty levels and inequalities across the country. Although the enrolment trends have been higher in recent years, completion rates have consistently been below the half mark due to high dropout rates.
