Kickstart is an innovative learning organization founded to improve the quality of education in Kenya thus reducing school dropout. We are a startup organization based in Kilifi. Our aim is to deliver programs that will address the learning gaps in schools thus eliminating school dropout.
Dreaming big but starting small.
The mission is to improve the quality of education in schools and ensure that all children not only attend but also thrive in school. This is being accomplished by working in collaboration with the government, local communities, parents, teachers, volunteers, and civil society members. Our programs aim to supplement rather than replace government efforts.
Our interventions are academic support (offering remedial classes, introduction of experiential learning reading clubs in schools and mentor-ship) and skills training in entrepreneurship, digital skills, and life skills. All programs are designed to ensure that learning levels in schools and communities increases, education reaches all children who are in school or unable to use school facilities, and out of school youth gets skills that will open up doors for more opportunities.
