Q: The focus is on girls, why enroll boys to school?
A: If we are raising strong and empowered women, we will need strong men who will not be intimidated to work with, marry, and live side by side these women.
Q: Why start with preschool and not primary school?
A: Early childhood is a crucial stage of life as the growth of mental and physical abilities progress at an astounding rate and a very high proportion of learning takes place from birth to age six. This is a time when children particularly need high-quality personal care and learning experiences.
Many children are missing out on this very important stage of learning because preschool provision and development in Kenya is under County governments and the systems are not yet established. Siprosa’s main purpose is to provide access to high quality education for all children, particularly girls from early age to prepare them for future success, learning and careers.
Q: What is different about the Siprosa approach?
A: Our student-to-teacher ratio is very low allowing children to get the care, attention and love that they need
- Children from diverse socio-economic backgrounds learn together
- Girls get the special attention they need to foster confidence and love for lifelong learning
- Teachers recognize and respect the children’s different backgrounds and experiences and tailor the class to encompass every student’s needs
- Curriculum is adapted for those who are ahead as well as those who need additional help

A: Here’s how you can help:

Q: What does the word Siprosa mean?
