Become a scholarship Supporter

BECOME A SUPPORTER OF OUR SCHOLARSHIP FUND FOR KYAITHANI and LOWER YATTA SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN NDANDINI KENYA
In 2011 we started providing scholarships for the 9 top achievers at the only secondary school in the Ndandini area. In 2019 we have now increased that to 66. There are now 410 desperately poor students at Kyaithani and Lower Yatta Secondary Schools striving to get an education so they can better their lives. Can you help us increase the number of scholarships that we provide?
$300 is the cost for school fees, a uniform and books for a child for a year. We provide a $150 per year scholarship to the top students based on their academic achievement. We are looking for donations in any amount.
Donors to the scholarships will be able to follow our progress on this blogspot as we post information about the children being sponsored, photos and letters.
100% of the donations received go to the students and the Board of Governors accounts to us for the funds. There are no deductions for fundraising or administration.
Like the students and their parents, we know that without an education there is little hope for them to make a better life for themselves.

Unlike in Canada, families in Kenya have to pay school fees and provide uniforms and books in order for their children to attend high school. Many children are forced to drop out because, with family incomes of less than $1/day, their families cannot afford to pay the school costs.


Donations in any amount will receive a tax receipt (for Canadian income tax returns).

We have a proven track record of successful projects in the Ndandini and Kyaithani area since 2007. For more information about all our projects in Ndandini visit

FIRST ADVANCE OF SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS COMPLETE

I am happy to report that this past month we have completed the fund raising for the scholarship project to allow us to support 9 secondary students this year at Kyaithani Secondary School.

We have already delivered the first (or three) cheques to cover the expenses of these students for the three terms.

We hope soon to have reports from Kyaithani which we will share with you all.

Keep watching for this.

The Sunshine Coast - Sechelt Rotary Club has also raised a project this year to not only support this scholarship project, but to also provide a solar system for the Kyaithani high school for lighting of the two classrooms and for a computer (with internet connection).

With the support of our donors this should prove to be a very good year for Kyaithani!

We are looking for donors now to begin our fund raising for these 9 student scholarships for next year.  will you consider helping.  It takes $300 to support one student for one year.  But every little bit helps.  If you can help, go to the DONATE button near the top right of the main screen.

Thanks

Terry & Joan
