CMETrust is a Canadian charity run by volunteers in Canada and Kenya. At CMETrust we believe every child should be able to go to school. We also believe that education empowers people to change their communities for the better. Yet, most children from Mathare, a slum in Kenya, cannot afford to attend secondary school. This is why we partner with members of the Mathare community to advance education – one student at a time.
Since 2006, CMETrust has supported more than 160 students in Mathare through secondary school scholarships. We also provide workshops on leadership, learning, and service to our scholars during school holidays and computer training to all of our graduates. Our alumni network is active and growing in Mathare, and we also provide support for our graduates to pursue post-secondary education where possible.
