Flying Kites Academy

In the foothills of Kenya's Aberdare Mountains, the Flying Kites Academy (FKA) serves as a model school in a region where access to a basic education is not guaranteed. Here, vulnerable students receive a competitive primary school education and integrative support aimed at meeting the needs of the Whole Child, such as nutritious food, clean water, and social work services. In addition to our standard extra-curricular activities, programming at FKA includes Girls United and LaunchPad.


Girls United provides students with the tools they need to identify and address gender-based violence at home and in the community.  Learn more >>


LaunchPad provides graduates from Flying Kites and FK School Network with access to secondary scholarships and university loans.
