January 2017 we kickstarted the Beauty & Brains scholarship fund for bright but underpriviledged girls in Kenya. This scholarship embodies the notion that when a girl sets her mind to something, she is unstoppable. Impact begins with education. Our first recipient Irene joined our program in 2014 as a tiny shy girl. In 2016 she was the top student in her school and the entire division securing a position in one of top provincial secondary schools in Kenya. Raised by her aging Grandfather her dream to complete her education was impossible.
Mfariji Africa took a leap of faith on her and awarded her a scholarship to cover her first year school fees.
