Sponsorship

At the secondary school level, Kenyan students and their families pay school fees to cover tuition, books and school uniforms. This comes to around 50,000 Khs, about $400!

We are currently supporting 25 students, but more sponsorships are needed.  By supporting youth in their secondary education, sponsors give young Kenyans a fighting chance to pull themselves out of poverty and create a viable living for their families. 

 

 

Five years ago, we started Sports for Change, a charity which combines passion for sports and desire to increase access to quality education for underprivileged youth.  In the years that followed, more and more people who had passion for change joined our cause helping us raise more money to support more needy students. The project aims at giving children from disadvantaged back ground a right to education, giving them an opportunity to reach to their full potential.

Apart from raising money through fun sports, we also get donors who sponsor individual students. It cost about 50,000 KES annually to educate a student. We make our overhead cost minimal by volunteering to coordinate our programs.

Our Achievements

We have helped more than 500 students indirectly by supporting their schools and 25 students directly by paying their secondary school fees.  Five of our students are pursuing their career dreams in different colleges and two are waiting to join university this year. Our desire is to assist more students access quality education and we need you to join hands with us and be part of this great cause

The problem

Whilst primary school in Kenya is free, secondary school is not, and so even the most promising & bright kids from poor background can miss out on secondary school. Our aim is to provide sustainable support to these kids to take them through to the end of secondary school and beyond. We are currently raising money for next year's fees, ensuring that we grow in a way that does not let any of our kids down in the future.

How will your donations help?

We are raising money to give more kids an opportunity to access education, provide them with a different outlook on what their lives may have on offer for them. This will open up an opportunity, that otherwise would remain inaccessible. Your donation will go along way in changing someone's life. 

Our aim is to raise 500,000KES (5000 USD) by end of June. You can help us reach our target by sponsoring our team, sharing our story with your friends or bringing your own group together to raise money by hiking with us!
