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

Some Letters from 2015 Scholarship Recipients. Very Touching Reading!

Greetings Donors and Friends

Below are six letters which I have just received from some of the scholarship recipients from this 2015 school year.

You will see that your support which has allowed us to provide 35 scholarships this year is very much appreciated and is making a very real difference in the lives of many students in the Kyaithani area.

Please take a moment to read them all.

Please help us again this year by making a donation (just use the "donate" button on the right side of this website).  It will be the most appreciated Christmas gift that you will give!

We now have over 325 students in the two secondary schools in the cluster of 7 schools that we support.  We'd love to be able to increase the number of scholarships that we provide so that we help more of these very poor kids to complete their secondary school education.
