About us

Who we are

School4Life is a charity registered in Switzerland and Germany that enables disadvantaged children in rural Kenya to succeed through Education.

School4Life was founded in 2011 after a group of friends had volunteered in rural Kenya and realized there were few learning opportunities available for many of those children. We wanted to make an impact and founded School4Life.

The members of the board are Agnes Ellis and Dr. Astrid Kühne Benker, running the daily operations of the charity. The Board is supported by a motivated Core Team looking after important departments like Marketing, IT, Fundraising and others. Everyone involved is voluntarily giving their time and energy to School4Life’s mission and vision, combing the experience, knowledge and contacts for the benefit of the children and their communities.

School4Life collaborates closely with Kenyan charities and teams on different programmes. We believe that development comes from within. In other words, we support and advise rather than actively enforcing change.
