So They Can (STC) is a charity registered in Australia that works with local communities in Kenya to permanently break the poverty cycle through education. The SMEC Foundation has supported STC since 2012, providing ongoing grant support and technical assistance on a range of community projects. In 2015, the SMEC Foundation donated $30,000 to support the development of a new STC Holding Hands Children’s Home in Miti Mingi Village. Founded in 2011, this project seeks to provide a safe home and quality education for more than 120 orphaned and vulnerable children. As one of 10 dedicated STC family homes in the village, ‘SMEC House’ will provide family care, education and support for eight orphaned children.
