Organization Overview

Tajizuri is a charitable organization working to respond to education, health, and the wellbeing of community members through innovative human-centred programmes. These programs are designed to scale up education for children in the hard-to-reach rural parts of Kenya, empower caregivers and teachers with both life skills and economic know-how to propel health, education and wellbeing at the household level. Our model is holistic and brings together the learner, the teacher, and the parent into the Education, Health, and Wellbeing conversation to promote behaviour change as well as influence change in attitude and mindset.

We are a vehicle working to Empower, Motivate, and Inspire communities.

Who We Are

Tajizuri is a non-profit organisation working in rural parts of Kenya to promote enablers for education, support sustainable development and resilience by inspiring a growth mindset, motivating behaviour change and empowering community members i.e teacher, caregivers and school going students to:

  • Tap into their potential
  • Eliminate barriers to education
  • Reimagine learning and re-engage learner, teacher, and caregiver, so as to; improve learner retention in school and catalyze sustainable economic growth

The Problem

Africa is facing high school dropouts and low retention

Lack of quality education and a conducive ecosystem, therefore, paralyses the potential of a society and a nation to thrive or prosper!

The Free Primary Education programme in Kenya was intended to end the despair of dropping out of school for lack of fees. However, thousands of children still abandon schooling early owing to a myriad of numerous barriers to education.

I love the work that TajiZuri is doing. Their approach to education by offering wrap-around support to learners – from mentorship, caregiver engagement, to life skills training for learners, teachers, and caregivers – is quite unique and effective in helping young people from rural and marginalized communities in Kenya access affordable quality and equitable education.
