The purpose of The Hansen Foundation for Education’s Kenya Project at Batian’s View is to allow talented, low-income students to receive the educational enrichment needed to contribute to Kenya’s development. HFE provides the vehicle for donors to sponsor and invest in Kenya’s youth and their future.
Batian’s View would like to expand and provide many more Kenyan students with few resources the opportunity to participate in Batian’s View leadership and team building programs. Youth in Kenya need opportunities to develop leadership skills that are not provided in the traditional school systems, and this is particularly critical for a growing population of low-income children in rural and urban areas.
Your donation would go towards the sponsoring of a child to participate in Batian’s View Experiential Education Center’s program and would make a life-long impact in the life of that child.
