Hands Up! Education in Action

Hands Up! Education in Action focuses on provision of education to vulnerable children and adults in Kenya. We do this through a transitional education programme, focused workshops, and counselling.

Founded 2011

  • Mission statement

    Our objectives in a nutshell are to assist vulnerable children in Kenya in such ways as the charity trustees think fit with an aim of improving access to education and providing high-quality education to those under the age of 18 as well as supporting continued development of their individual capabilities, competencies, skills and understanding in subjects of educational value. We also provide short-term educational programmes to vulnerable adults to improve job prospects.

    To assist vulnerable children to progress into formal school through transitional educational support.
    To support adults to improve their education with a goal of improving job prospects, through a short-term educational programme.
    To educate and create awareness to vulnerable children in a range of settings through focused workshops.
    To empower children, young adults and women to recognise their rights and take responsibility for their future.
    To facilitate partnerships and networks with other street child organisations in Kenya and work together to reach a common goal.
    To contribute where possible to governmental and non-governmental initiatives to tackle root causes of children living on the streets.
