Become a scholarship Supporter

BECOME A SUPPORTER OF OUR SCHOLARSHIP FUND FOR KYAITHANI and LOWER YATTA SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN NDANDINI KENYA
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

Fundraising season thoughts

The Christmas season is when most of you, our donors, make your very much needed and appreciated donations to the Kyaithani Scholarship Fund.

Last year your donations enabled us to provide 64 scholarships for the secondary students in this remote and destitute area of eastern Kenya.

18 of the 64 scholarships were given to students in Form 4 and who will graduate with much better grades than they would have without your scholarship help.

However, in order to maintain our number of provided scholarships at 64, this means that for the coming year we will need to provide 18 scholarships for incoming Form 1 students.  The amount of money that we need for each Form 1 scholarship is $600 ($150 for each of the 4 years duration of the scholarship).

Our fundraising goal this year must be at least $10,800 in order to continue to provide at least 64 scholarships.

Last year we raised slightly over $11,000 so I know we can do it if we all keep these desperately poor students in our hearts over this Christmas time.

Thanks for your past and ongoing support!

May we all have a wonderful Christmas and be blessed throughout the coming year.
