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

FINAL SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS FOR THIS YEAR ADVANCED

We have now completed the provision of the us$300 of scholarships for this year for each of the nine students at the Kaithani Secondary School in Kenya.

We are now looking for donations to start the program for the coming year.  I hope that everyone who contributed this past year will donate again and perhaps even consider increasing your contribution?  We are also looking for more donors so that we can hopefully increase the niumber of students receiving a scholarship. 

With family incomes int he area of only $1/day, it is almost impossible for an average family to pay the $300/year that it costs to send a child to high school.

Please read the letters below which we recently received from teh scholarship recipients.  you will see that they are most grateful and also plead for us to help more of the needy students at their school.
