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

Photos of the 48 scholarship recipients for 2016

We have just returned from visiting all the 7 schools in the Kyaithani Cluster.  We are happy to report that great progress is being made in improving the academic performance in all 5 primary schools and the two secondary schools.

The Scholarship Program is a huge incentive for these students.

All the recipients told us how grateful they are for the help their families have received because of the scholarships.  Because of this help they have been able to attend school consistently.  Many students whose families have difficulty finding the money for the school fees are sent home until they can return with the required school fee payment.

There are now 410 students in the two secondary schools.  All come from very poor families.  Our 48 scholarships are a good start but we could do so much more if we had more donor financial support.

Below are photos of the 48 scholarship recipients at the two schools in 2016.

Thanks for all you do.  Terry & Jan
