Bitrix24 Helps Endeleza International Provide Affordable And Quality Education In Kenya

Endeleza is a nonprofit organization that provides affordable and quality education and encourages community empowerment and sustainable development in Buri, Kenya. 

Why Endeleza Matters 

By law primary education in Kenya is free, but in practice it does not happen: teachers don’t get paid in schools and families have to compensate their salaries. Children who do not have financial means to pay their school fees are deprived of access to education. As about half of the population lives below the poverty line in Kenya, a significant portion of citizens has no access to basic sanitation, medical treatment, regular food and live in precarious conditions, which further impairs the quality of education and perpetuates the cycle of poverty across generations. 

At the moment Endeleza provides education and meals for 300 local children in Kenya. This association is growing, attracting new members who believe that much more can be done for local children. 

How Bitrix24 Helps 

CRM, Calendars, Tasks and Projects are the most necessary tools for the association. The team believes that Bitrix24 improved their productivity, as their tasks are getting more organized and on time. Bitrix24 CRM helps Endeleza attract new members and grow as association. By the end of the year Endeleza plans to double the number of people who collaborate via Bitrix24. 

“Previously the NGO used Asana but when we needed a CRM with multiple users, I ran behind several systems and performed tests on them. Bitrix24 was the one which gave us greater user flexibility and more utilities. Moreover, our concern was to pass on the money to African children. As Bitrix24 is a free solution, it was the first option of choice,” says Felipe Gerais, a representative of Endeleza.
