$50 a month is what it takes to provide a month of education, room and board for one high school student in Kenya. Most of these students are orphans or living with a single parent or grandparent. The money needed for their education is not something they would have if it were not for our student sponsorship program. It's an awesome project that truly makes a difference.
In addition, some of our HS students have graduated and we are now allowing them to apply for college scholarships.Donate
