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

We are happy to report that, based on donations received over the Christmas 2013 and early 2014 period, we are able to provide 29 scholarships this year.  Thanks to you all this has been a steady increase from the 9 that we provided when we first started the scholarship program several years ago.

The cost for this year for these 29 scholarships was $4800 with sufficient funds being held in trust to ensure that all 29 of these recipients will receive scholarships in future years as long as they continue to achieve acceptable academic standing.

Here are photos of the recipients in each of the four forms this year.

Thanks again for your ongoing support and interest in helping these kids.  Many of them come from single parent homes and several are orphans.  Without these scholarships they would not be able to continue with their schooling.
