KMYA appreciates that education plays a pivotal role in human development and societal progress. In essence, education defines the content and quality of social life in addition to defining the pace and
and direction of societal progress. That access to gainful opportunities is largely determined by academic achievements reiterates the importance of education in modern society. Under this thematic area, KMYA has facilitated the formation of an NGO in Kibera called BAWAKI (Baraza La Waalim Kibera). This organization consists of teachers from both mainstream schools and madrassas of Kibera—the aim is to raise the standards of Madrassa education in Kibera and Kenya as a whole.
