Our program’s main focus is to promote education for refugee children in the South Sudanese Community in Kakuma Refugee Camp, Kenya.
I Stretch My Hand is involved in several activities that promote education. As an organization,
we prioritize funding school fees and mentorship programs.
ISMH team carried out selection process for the first cohort of the scholarship program in Kakuma Refugee Camp. Out of the 106 qualified applicants the team received, 5 students emerged the best and ISMH considered them for a 4 year scholarship to some of the best high schools in Kenya. Congratulations to the 5!
Mentorship program being at the centre of ISMH, the team conducted three mentorship programs in the camp. The mentorships overwhelmingly received huge attendants with the first being attended by 220+ students, second attended by 569+ students and this shows how much such activities meant to the students. Topics covered by the team were: Career guidance, scholarship opportunities available in the camp, girls motivation and extracurricular activities.
