As used by the Kipsigis people in Kenya, "Kecher" is a term that might loosely translate as "motivate". After a basic concept to mentor kids from rural Kenya in mid-2019, Kecher extended its focus to include webinars about studying abroad, student exchanges, and other educational tools. Because high school kids are at a crossroads in their lives, we chose to focus on them.
