SPONSOR A CHILD

Secondary school fees vary and as some of our children are already attending secondary school we would like to try and keep them at the school they have become accustomed to. Most of our childrens schools range between $250 a year to $550.

Primary schooling in Kenya is free but however hard they work this level of education can only go so far. To secure work and support themselves and their future families, children need to at least be educated to a secondary school level and take the KCSE (Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education) exams.

While families are struggling to feed themselves and their children paying this sort of money for education is out of the question for most Maasai families. Parents realize the importance of education and although they are determined to keep their traditions they also have to progress with the rest of the world if they are to survive.

The donations given will cover the children’s school fee’s, accommodation while at school, transport to and from school and hygiene kits which include soap, toothbrush and toothpaste. As a sponsor you will be regularly updated with the children’s progress, be sent photo’s and letters written by the children.

Through sponsorship we can also ensure that both boys and girls get equal opportunities for secondary school education as many families believe sending their daughters to school is a waste of money. Maasai girls are often married off at a young age or become pregnant but with sponsor they will be encouraged to complete their education and be able to support themselves in the future.

Although we would encourage our sponsors to support their chosen child for the full 4 years of secondary school we also appreciate this can be quite a commitment and you are welcome to sponsor a child for just one year and then decide later on if you would like to continue the support. Or join forces and sponsor a child with a friend, or group of friends.
