Adopt A School Initiative is a strategic approach based on FKE programme on Tackling Child Labour through Education. FKE in its  mandate has a responsibility of promoting an agenda on Corporate (Social Responsibility) (CSR) where Employers  are expected to consider investing in community initiatives while at the same time taking responsibility for the impact of their activities on customers, suppliers, employees, shareholders, communities and other stakeholders, as well as the environment.

FKE has developed CSR guidelines for its members. The CSR guidelines are clear on corporate organizations responsibility in alleviating poverty among the community members, the lead cause of child labour. This action programme’s approach is to build capacity of selected employers in the agriculture sector on CSR and how this approach can be reinforced to support elimination of child labour through improved school feeding programmes. 

Objective of the “Adopt A School initiative”

The overall objective of the proposed initiative is to contribute towards poverty reduction among the least developed communities by providing equitable access to basic education and skills development to the most disadvantaged section of the society.  

Specific Objectives

  • To enhance FKE’s image and that of its members as champions in supporting the elimination of child labour in Kenya.
  • A sustainable Corporate Social Responsibility initiative on elimination and prevention of child labour through the “Adopt a school initiative”
