Abeingo Bursary Recipients 2013

Abeingo Canada launched a bursary program in 2010 to address the barriers which hamper access to education by needy students including HIV/AIDS orphans in Kenya. The bursary is being supported through funds raised annually by Abeingo Canada well-wishers.

Since the introduction of the “Free Primary Education” policy, in 2003, where school fees and levies were abolished at the primary school level, relieving the household burden of financing primary education in Kenya, there has been an upsurge of children transitioning from primary school to secondary school. Many of the students come from poor families and many are orphans that have been affected by AIDS. Kenya has 2.0 to 2.5 million children who have been orphaned due to AIDS. HIV/AIDS is eroding the family and community capacity to meet the needs of orphans and other vulnerable children (OVC), including economic and food security, education, nutrition, health, and emotional well-being. The number of OVC is expected to continue to rise for the foreseeable future.


Bursary Objectives

  • Provide financial support to poor or orphaned high school students in Kenya so that they can successfully complete their high school education
  • Provide mentorship, counselling and other resources to these students so that they can be well-equipped to overcome the hardships pulling them back
