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

Kyaithani Scholars Thank You. Can you help provide more scholarships in 2015?

Here are a few extracts from some of the 26 letters of appreciation that we received from the students at Kyaithani Secondary School in Kenya.  You will be touched by the impact that your donations to the scholarship program are making in the lives of these students.

Thanks for your support.  Please consider supporting the scholarship program again this Christmas season.

I appreciate your tireless efforts to ensure my learning. With your support I have been able to axquire my Secondary School education. If possible, I request you to sponsor my education next year in a higher level of learning. I am also humbly requesting that you extend your scholarships to more students who are bright and needy and for many days they have been missing class because of lack of money for their school fees.
