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

The Scholarship program WORKS!

Jan & Terry just visited the now 8 schools in the Kyaithani Cluster of 2 Secondary and 6 primary schools in Kenya.

While there they were surprised to meet up with Patrick.  Patrick received one of the original scholarships back in 2011.  He achieved the highest grades so far recorded at Kyaithani Secondary and successfully went on to university.
Patrick with Terry, Darcy and Jan and Kimali his original principal from Kyaithani Secondary School

He is just graduating with his B. Commerce and will soon be working with one of Kenya's Banks.

Terry and Jan met up Patrick during their visit to Ndunguni Primary school.  Patrick was there trying to encourage these young students to study hard and get ahead in life because of education.
The young Ndunguni primary students so eager to learn

Thanks to all our donors who support our scholarship program.

We look forward to hearing many more good stories like this one.

The scholarship program is working!!

This year 2017 we are sponsoring 60 students in the scholarship program.
