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

Give a Scholarship this Christmas

As you think of the things on your Christmas list, please consider one gift that will make a real difference in someone's life. 

A $300 scholarship for a desperately poor high school student in Kenya can change their life.  If you can only spare a bit, every bit counts!  Take the time to read some of the letters below and I know you will then agree that your scholarship gift will make this Christmas the best Christmas ever for the students of Kyaithani Secondary School in eastern Kenya.

Thanks for your help as we strive to increase the number of scholarships from the 17 we provided last year to a much larger number for the 150 students at this school who all come from very poor families.

Merry Christmas to all our Donors.
