Founded in 2009, Bidii Foundation is a registered 501(c)3 organization dedicated to combating famine and poverty in rural Luyekhe in western Kenya, by providing children with access to quality education. 

 

Supporting Education and Innovation

Because of the various socio-economic limitations, we find that:

  • 26% of the school age children are forced into child labor

  • 20% of the Kenyan populations live below the international poverty line of $1.25 a day

  • Children in primary school (1st through 8th grade) lack uniforms and often skip lunch when they go to school

  • Lack of tuition, school supplies and mentorship for students going to secondary school can change the trajectory of their lives 

  • While in school, children forgo higher education opportunities to produce income working on the family farm or selling in the marketplace

  •  Primary and secondary children lack self-esteem and motivation to help nurture commitment to academic success

  • Majority of orphans in Kenya are cared for by their elderly grandparents in mostly rural communities living below the international poverty line of $1. 25 a day
