In 2017 the Akili Trust supported 24 students (13 boys and 11 girls) at 16
different secondary schools at a total cost of 1,244,185 ks, almost £10,000
(subject to exchange rate fluctuations).
The average cost of a bursary in 2017 was 51,841ks (about £400) ranging from
63,396 (£460) to 46,000ks (£333). After some years of steep increases in school
fees, as we have reported on previously, the Kenyan government has now
imposed a cap on secondary school fees and we are expecting them to level off
in the future.
