Seeds for Hope, Inc. is a development organization dedicated to serving those in poverty living in Africa, through programs and services that promote sustainable development.
Only 57% of African children are enrolled in primary education, and one of three children do not complete school.
134 million children between the ages of 7 to 18 have never been to school.
For every year of education, wages increase by a worldwide average of 10 percent.
Educated mothers tend to send their children to school, helping to break the cycle of poverty.
In Kenya, less than 50 percent of students who finish primary will move on to high school, and 2.8 percent go to University and beyond
SFH is committed to addressing the root causes of poverty, including but not limited to: Economic Development, HIV/AIDS Prevention and Support, Education, Public Health
