Become a scholarship Supporter

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

Scholarships to be given for 2012 year

A BIG THANKS to all our donors! 

Because of your great support of the Kyaithani Secondary School scholarship fund this past year, we will be able to continue to provide the $300 scholarships to each of the 9 scholarship students who received them last year.

As well, this year we will be providing additional scholarships to the 7 new students who have excelled this past year and have joined the ranks of those previous 9 scholars who have achieved being in the "top 3" in their school year.  Each of these new scholarships will be for $150.

Students receiving scholarships this year are:
Form 4:  David (new), John, Anna (new), Kelvin, and Felistus N.
Form 3:  Felistus K (new), Faith, Syombua, and Maureen.
Form 2:  Shadrack, Joyce (new), Sophia, and Joseph.
Form 1:  Mary (new), Titus (new), and Frida (new).

Thanks again.  Please keep the scholarship fund in your giving plans for 2012.  Every one of the students are deeply appreciative of your generosity - as are we.
