The Constitution of Kenya sets out basic education as up to form four in Kenya. It is therefore, imperative that all Kenyan children access this basic right to education in Kenya. Many Kenyans are, however, locked out of the opportunity to proceed to high school in Kenya due to lack of funds for school fees. This is despite having scored highly in their KCPE examinations in Kenya. The Starehe Girls Centre in Kenya and Starehe Boys centre in Kenya offer free secondary education to needy students in Kenya, but not all of them can get into these centres. Some charitable and corporate organisations in Kenya have, therefore, set up funds to provide bright and financially needy pupils with scholarships in Kenya to pursue secondary school education. Some of the scholarship funds in Kenya that support needy students in Kenya to pursue secondary school education in Kenya are:
