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, shoes, money for books and fees, as well as a nourishing daily meal. Your monthly gift of $40 per month helps us provide all of these, and keeps that child in school. Please scroll down to see children waiting for your sponsorship.
