The Flying Kites Leadership Academy & Teacher Training Institute:

In the foothills of Kenya's Aberdare Mountains, the Flying Kites Leadership Academy (FKLA)  serves as a model school in a region where access to a basic education is not guaranteed. Here, vulnerable students receive a competitive 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 FKLA includes:

LaunchPad provides FKLA graduates with access to secondary scholarships and university loans, as well as workshops that help them succeed.  Learn more >>

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

Teacher Training Institute

Our commitment to investing in our teachers has transformed our classrooms. But just outside of our campus are under-resourced public schools struggling to provide students with the fundamentals of a primary education, and teachers who instruct as many as 70 students per class, and who lack access to the kind of resources and training that fosters and improves their own basic teaching skills. Through our Teacher Training Institute, we are working to equip rural Kenya’s teachers with the tools they need to improve student outcomes.

With a combination of training summits and personalized coaching, and in partnership with Dignitas, our model supports local public school teachers to develop student-centered learning environments, emphasize critical thinking and creativity, and introduces strategies and resources to help move more students out of poverty.

In 2018, we are partnering with 4 schools and a total of 25 teachers, who work with more than 2,900 students. Within the next five years we aim to expand this program to partner with 40 schools, reaching a total of 450 teachers who collectively instruct nearly 30,000 primary school students in rural Kenya’s public primary schools.

The Flying Kites School Network

The Flying Kites School Network is a cohort of resource-poor public primary schools. In partnership with the Ministry of Education, and in collaboration with select implementing partners, we support schools in our network with intensive interventions aimed at addressing obstacles to learning in the South Kinangop District, such as lack of water and sanitation infrastructure, school meal programs, and teacher training opportunities. By partnering with schools to support their needs and introduce innovative strategies to address their challenges, thousands more students will have the chance to be healthy, safe, engaged, challenged and supported.
