Sponsor A Child

     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. (Sorry! All children were sponsored.)

     Please return here in a few days to view a whole new batch of children worthy of sponsorship. We are thankful for the great response we have had in the past three months!
