Thanks to the determination of East African voters and governments, with support from the international community, East African children have a better chance of getting a formal education than ever before in history.
We at Growth Through Learning believe that East African countries can build on those successes to improve school access for girls beyond primary school and to make sure those successes reach girls in the most undeserved areas of each country. But the challenges are more subtle than you might think.

Forever Grateful

I will forever remain grateful to God and GTL for significantly changing my life and bringing hope in my life. I look forward to becoming a blessing to many. Thank you Indeed and God bless you all as you continue with this noble task. Today, I am married to Dennis Nyaga and run my own clinical laboratory in Kirinyaga. I am able to comfortably support my parents, siblings and my own family.

Grateful to Donors who made my education possible

I am eternally grateful to everyone at GTL and the Donors who made my education possible. I reported to school in February 2010 with only 1,400 shillings for fees, instead of the 33,000 shillings (US $370) I needed.  I was taken in because the principal took pity on me. The following day Mr. Godfrey Okello, GTL Western Kenya Coordinator, called me from class and gave me an application for a scholarship to fill out. When I received the first receipt confirming my fees had been paid by GTL, I knew I had to study hard. Now I am at Taita Taveta University in Kenya.

God bless the whole GTL community

I wish to thank the organization very much for the financial help throughout my 4 years course in Kabare Girls’ High School. I successfully completed the course due to your help and support not forgetting through God’s help. Thank you very much for helping out young girls from humble backgrounds around East Africa. God bless the whole GTL community…..thank you so much for your help’.

"My favorite thing about school is that I am given the ability to proceed in my future and an ability to change the lives of my family. I am now a student tutor at school. I want to assist GTL to help others to be role models and leaders too".  -Lynnex Chepkonga Korir, MogotioGirls  School, Kenya

GTL made sure that my future is bright.

Thank you GTL and all the donors for the role-played in making sure my future is bright.Through hard work and determination I graduated in November 2014, with first class honors, and I’m currently searching for a job. My career goal is to obtain a Master’s in Information Technology and become a lecturer. I believe being a lecturer will put me in a better position to mentor, inspire and support young women both academically and financially
