In the United States public school attendance is free for all. In Kenya, public schools cost per student on average $600 USD to $1000 USD per term for secondary school (include room and board). Kenyan primary schools average cost range from $200 USD to $400 USD per student. The Kenyan parents must also pay for school uniforms, books, all supplies, PE kit shoes, and a lockable box or trunk for students in secondary school. Parents living in poverty, on less than $1 USD per day cannot afford public school for their children. You can Sponsor a student to change that!
