Orphan Sponsorship

Due to extreme Poverty, many pastoralists’ children in Northern Eastern Kenya live in extreme hardship. Education which is vital to breaking the vicious cycle of poverty, for many children in this region is still out of reach. Although the national government have increased investment in education the past 10 years, due to many years of marginalisation, a lot still needs to be done for the region to catch up with other provinces in terms of socio-economic development.

In Kenya, the average yearly fee in a district or provincial school is £187.50 (which is about £15.63 per month). Just imagine how your donation could change the life of a pastoralist child in Northern Kenya. Please make a difference by sponsoring as many children as you can, and we will provide you with up to date information on their progress, on a term-by -term or annual basis as you prefer.IMG-20160211-WA0013
