School Uniform Project

Education for primary school pupils in Kenya has been free since 2003. However schools  require all pupils to be dressed in the school uniform of their particular school. For poor rural families this can be a burden particularly for parents who have multiple children in school. The boys whom Capstone reconciles with families mostly come from poor rural homes who struggle to provide for their children. Since a child may have to wait a few weeks for a family to have the funds to buy the school uniform, Capstone Ministries provides one set of the school uniform in those circumstances where enrollment may be delayed. Idle hands can often bring a temptation for the boy to run back to the street. This project was started in order to enhance stability of the boy at home. We don’t buy a uniform for every child but only where it is deemed essential to the immediate enrollment of the boy.
