Tunaweza Foundation is a non profit organization, which is a fully registered Non Governmental Organisation. It is located in Nairobi, Kenya.
We endeavour to finance the post primary education of bright and deserving students hence according them equal opportunity like any other main stream children in the community.
Education is a life time cash crop and self sustaining in its own nature, education is power to those who embrace it hence we wish these destitute children could get access to education.
Twenty eight years ago, Bosco Mutegi Kiura was born in a village called Gatoori, in Embu, Kenya. Growing up, he got to understand an education was the best mean to achieve his personal goals. During Primary School, he found himself walking to school barefoot, but that did not seem to be a problem, his motivation was stronger than the difficulties he had to face.
After nine years of primary school, he joined St. Pauls High School Kevote where he had challenges in paying the school fees but managed to successfully apply to university. He completed his Bachelor's Degree in Finance at the Kenya Methodist University and later pursued a Masters Degree, also in Finance, at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology thanks to a scholarship offered by an Italian family. The Italian family has been giving money to help needy but deserving children from developing countries like Kenya get access to education since 2006.
After benefiting from this program, initiated and funded by the Italian family, we believe that it would be unfair for us not to think of ways in which we can contribute to other bright children, who deserve such opportunities as offered by generous people like this family from all over the world. This is why the Tenaweza Foundation endeavours to transform lives and help poor bright and worthy students through education. It is our hope that we will impact on lives and livelihoods in our community.
Our program hopes to distribute books, pens, and other necessary stationary for students, as well as providing sanitary pads, and building latrines for local schools. Currently the program is only funded by a certain percentage of the Founder's salary and donations from well wishers. We seek to engage the government, the general public, and other selfless persons who go out of their way to make a difference in the lives of others.
Our vision is to transform the lives of resource poor, bright and deserving students through education.
