WHO WE ARE

The Second Chance Education Centre (SCEC) is based in North Rift   Kenya. We are a Christ centered program and a project under the Advocacy for change foundation (ACF). Advocacy for Change Foundation (ACF) is a Christian Non-governmental organization founded in 2012 and registered in 2013 and based in Eldoret. We seek to enable persons and societies realize the possible opportunities within their reach. The organization seeks to cultivate an environment where all people thrive in the community. The organization focuses on promoting interdependent cooperation in working with and among all persons in Western region and North Rift regions to promote and safeguard the wellbeing of Orphaned and Vulnerable Children (O.V.C) and support families identify their needs and find solutions together as we proclaim the love of Christ.

The SCEC project operates as a community based entity as a project of ACF.

 The Mission of SCEC is to provide opportunities in communities that promote the well-being and capacity of teen girls and their families.

And our vision to ensure girls and other teenagers denied opportunity has a chance today to bring lives in future.

Our hope is that what we are doing will continue to expand to other parts of Western Kenya. We are based in Eldoret town near Kapsoya where we target the low income and no income settlements in the city and its environs.
