We firmly believe that a basic education is the key to a more hopeful future for the children of Kenya. While primary education (K-8) is provided free by the government, our students need uniforms, money for books and fees, as well as a nourishing daily meal. Your monthly gift of $35 helps us provide all of these, and keeps that child in school. Please scroll down to see children waiting for your sponsorship.

His parents used to depend on the sale of charcoal to meet their daily needs, but since the government banned the selling of charcoal it is now hard for them to provide and pay school fees for their children. Alan is in second grade and attends Ilkerine Primary School.
Alex is one of eight children. He has five brothers and two sisters. He is in fifth grade and attends Empopong'i Primary School, Alex is a bright student.

He will be sitting for his grade eight examination this year, and is very worried about whether he will be able to go to high school in the future.
