ADOK E-FUND refers to the money set aside by the Archbishop of Kisumu, through the Department of Catholic Justice & Peace in the Commission for the Integral Human Development, for the education of justifiably needy who have passed their National Examinations for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education but are unable to pay for their secondary education
How Does ADOK E-Fund get its money?
Why the concern?
During the Liturgical Season of Lent every year, we FAST and OFFER and PUT TOGETHER the money and we allocate this money for several forms of charitable work like supporting the education of vulnerable children within the jurisdiction of the Archdiocese of Kisumu. This is a locally funded venture but which is open to partnerships from across the world.
To support the education of justifiably needy students who have successfully completed primary school but are not able to proceed to the next education level due to lack of such support.
The Kenyan Government has made huge steps in the provision of both primary and secondary education for its citizens. Both the Free Primary Education Program and the free tuition in secondary schools has led to an increased enrolment of students in primary and secondary schools.
In spite of such subsidies for education, many families still have to carry the burden of extra costs of education like school uniforms, boarding costs, as well as those other levies introduced by schools to bridge gaps like the high ratio of students per teacher, forcing them to have BOM-employed teachers. The result is that so many students still end up not being able to afford secondary education.
Several other interventions have indeed tried to supplement the deficit. Such interventions include bursaries from the Constituency Development Fund, available across the country. However, the gap is not yet filled, noting the sometimes little amount that such bursaries are able to provide. The Archdiocese of Kisumu Education Fund (ADOK E-FUND) seeks to join the other stakeholders who have tried to supplement a bridging in the provision for education to needy pupils facing such predicaments.
