|About||An Alumni community for Every School.|
|Mission||Our mission is to help strengthen public education systems and create fairer societies by engaging former students at their old schools as career role models, sports coaches, mentors and in school governance through the BOM. We want to turn schools into communities in Kenya and around the World.|
Research shows that Kenyans were more willing than any other nation to give back, but they are not yet doing so. Our initial survey with IPOS Synovate indicated that 78% of Kenyan adults would be willing to give back to their former school but only 1 % is doing so. Despite many alumni networks, thousands of WhatsApp groups and some high profile fundraising events, alumni associations are mainly inactive outside of a few national schools. Future First Kenya wishes to change that by bringing the alumni model to every school in Kenya.
The organization which is part of Future First Global, is backed by an alumni advisory group made up of some of the world’s leading figures in alumni relations. We have been in operation in Kenya since 2012. We are hoping to have atleast 30% of Kenyan Schools supported by thriving alumni communities in the next five years and a National coverage by 2030.
The Future First program, has 3 key pillars through which we spearhead the creation and growth of thriving alumni communities as below:
Alumni Leadership Programme
Annual Alumni Conference
Global Back To School Campaign
