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

Kaithani scholarship recipients provide us with letters

In early October, we visited Ndandini Village and the 7 schools that we support in the area.  We also visited Kyaithani Secondary School and the 29 students there that receive scholarships from our donors.

29 scholarship recipients provide us with thank you letters
Each of the scholarship recipients took the opportunity to hand deliver a letter of thanks for our donors' generosity.  Many of them are very heartwarming and most stress how valuable the scholarship has been - without it they would not have been able to continue their education.  If you would like to read the letters, let me know (

We are now entering our Christmas season.  A time when we all think about giving, and about those less fortunate than ourselves.

Please consider providing some money to our scholarship program so that we can continue to provide these students with an education.  We'd like to increase the number of students that we support.

Have a great Christmas.

Terry & Jan
