Sponsor a child in Kenya

In Kenya when you sponsor a child, a little can go a long way.

£35 per month fully supports the education of a child.

Covering the cost of primary, secondary and tertiary fees, uniform, shoes, school meals, stationery, books (and sanitary towels for girls) means that the child you sponsor can attend school without fear of being sent home.

Through separate donations and fundraising, alongside your sponsorship we strive to improve living conditions, provide food and farming support and give children and their families access to psychosocial support.

The friendships made through this scheme are life long and the change being made is tangible. You will get back more than you give!


Jon Millar, sponsor of Grace Nyakai

As a sponsor you can be in regular contact with the child you are sponsoring through letter writing and in some cases email, Facebook or WhatsApp, whilst you will also receive updates from ourselves on your child's progress as well as photos.

But most importantly for just £35 per month you can give a kid in Kenya a chance they might not otherwise have.
