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

Chatelech Secondary Rotary Interact Club raises funds for Kyaithani Secondary Scholarships

Yesterday was a great day for the members of the Chatelech Secondary School Rotary Interact Club in Sechelt BC.  They had decided that they wanted to help some less privileged students in Kenya's Kyaithani Secondary School by providing some money for our scholarship program.


Young attendees at the Chatelech Interact Club's fundraising dance
So last night they organized a "Winter Wonderland" dance for all the grade 6 and 7 students in the Sechelt area with some of the proceeds going towards our Kyaithani Secondary Scholarship fund.

A great time was had by both the 100+ grade 6 and 7 attendees and also by the members of the Interact Club.
The members of the Interact Club will also be starting an email club to exchange emails between the students in both schools.  It will be great to see the relationships grow between the students in the two schools.

Thanks so much Interactors!! 

Merry Christmas to you all!!
