The main objective of the Dobbyn Foundation, Inc. is to raise and distribute money enabling children to achieve a secondary education in East Africa. The organization’s primary purpose is to make secondary education possible for African children, who would normally be marginalized from proper schooling due to repressive school fees.
Due to current global initiatives throughout East Africa to ensure children have a right to universal primary education, the topic of secondary education has been left off all of the local and international policies and agendas.
As a direct result, hundreds of thousands of children have no opportunity to continue their education at the secondary school level. Thus the majority of people within East Africa are left with a basic primary school education throughout their entire life. This is where the Dobbyn Foundation will be able make a difference.
