WADAWIDA EDUCATION FUND (WEF) is a non-political welfare society founded by concerned Wadawida with an objective of assisting needy bright Dawida students in paying their school fees.

Wadawida Education Fund (WEF) seeks to promote intellectual advancement and capacity building among people from the Taita region of Kenya. The society is duly registered under the government of Kenya regulations.

Some of the ways in which the society propagates its ideals is by paying school fees for needy bright students from this community, counsseling youth on the careers choices available to them, and engaging in activities that promote a clean environment.

Why is the Fund Important

Education standards in Taita/Taveta county have been in a general decline in the recent past, despite the introduction of free primary education and subsidised secondary education. Many bright young people from the community have not been able to join high school, either due to ignorance, or due to lack of funds. Through the spirit of community and sponsorship from other individuals, WEF would be in a better financial position to sponsor more students.

Meet the Team

WEF is a private Education Fund founded in 2009 by a few individuals from different parts of Taita Taveta County. The founders believe that change starts with individuals themselves and Education key to this fundamental  change. It is through ensuring that children get proper  education that true positive change can be realised. This in return drives the economy of Taita.

WEF’s aim is to sponsor bright needy students from Taita Taveta County. A number of bright students loose their places at prestigious schools and many other miss secondary school education all together due to lack of funds. Through WEF, 6 students have benefited so far.
