A free child educational course in the city underclass has become the latest example of how to boost education opportunities for girls and women in developing countries.
In December, the organisation, which operates in the UK and the US, launched its free online course in Nairobi, Kenya, with the aim of providing women and girls with an affordable and high-quality child education option.
The new initiative aims to empower girls and young women, and provides them with a platform to achieve and retain their educational ambitions.
“We are committed to helping girls and female learners succeed at school through the education we offer, but at the same time, we want to empower the young learners in Kenya,” said Yvonne Dukwara, founder and executive director of the organization.
“Girls and young learners are the fastest-growing segment of the young adult population in Kenya.
We want to encourage them to get involved and start building their educational skills.
By providing an education that is accessible to all, it will empower girls in a way that is more inclusive than it was before.”
Dukwaara and her team hope the course will empower young learners to feel empowered and take up their education aspirations, rather than being left to fend for themselves, as they are in Kenya today.
“The reason we created the new course was to help empower women, to empower young people, to make sure they have the best opportunities to learn and to be able to pursue their dreams,” said Dukwara.
The course is available to anyone, with access free of charge, for the duration of the school year.
The program was launched by Nairobio’s Kewa Academy, a public school run by the government of Kenya.
The school also runs the Kewabara Girls’ Secondary School in Nubale.
“Our goal is to empower women and empower them to go out there and do the work that is important for them, not to think that they have to do the same work as everyone else,” said Nubalese Kewabi, who helped run the Nairobian Academy, which was created in 2016 to train girls in the public school system.
“When they go out to study, they should not be worried about how they can afford the education, and the same goes for other students.”
Duka and her colleagues hope the new free course will give women and young people in Kenya access to the best education available, and give them a chance to earn a decent living.
“There are no good options available to them,” said Kewala, who works in marketing.
“They can only do their job when they get the right education and they make sure that they do it on the right path.”
A free education is one of the many initiatives the Nubalenza organization has undertaken to boost the education of young women and children in the country.
“This is not a free education, but a very accessible education, free of cost,” said Dr. Kiyoko Ntambi, head of the Nabale Institute for Women in Kenya, who was among the first to launch a free online child education program in 2015.
“A lot of people don’t think that children can learn, that they need to have a tutor or that they can’t do everything themselves,” she added.
Ntombi has worked with the NABE since 2014, and says the education provided by the organization can be invaluable to women in rural areas.
“If we want them to achieve better, we have to provide them with the best possible education,” she said.
“It is important to understand the role that education plays in our society, and to provide it in a manner that will empower them.”
According to Ntoma, children are not only the ones who are learning in rural communities.
“Children are also learning through us.
A new era of empowerment for young women The Nubala Institute for Youth in Kenya is part of the larger Nubana Initiative, which works to improve the lives of young people through community engagement and mentoring. “
In this way, we are teaching them to do good and to do well.”

It also aims to raise awareness of the importance of female empowerment, and in the process of doing so, promote the empowerment of young girls and boys across the country, as well as women.
“One of the ways that we have tried to bring awareness to the empowerment issue in Kenya through our work is through the empowerment education program that is being launched,” said Gertrude Fonua, executive director and executive chairperson of Nubamba, which runs a range of programs to empower students in the education sector.
“Many people in the Nuer community are not aware of the work we do to empower youth in their communities, and we think that this is a huge opportunity for us,”
