Scholarships for Needy and Gifted Students

At the secondary school level, find Kenyan students and their families pay school fees to cover tuition, store books, and school uniforms.  This comes to around $500 per year in a country where the average annual income is less than $200.   Consequently, many students, particularly those who have lost their parents to AIDS or other diseases common to East Africa, are unable to afford their secondary education.  Many otherwise qualified students forgo their education for lack of funds and in order to care for their remaining family members.

Currently, The Elewana Education Project’s sponsorship program supports over 140 impoverished Kenyans throughout 30 primary and secondary schools across western Kenya.  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.  Sponsorships are $500.00 per year and cover all tuition, books, and uniform costs.  Sponsors, in deciding to support a child for a year, are encouraged to consider what kind of student they might want to sponsor, perhaps an orphaned female, for example.
