You can do this by contributing as little as $15 per month ($180 annually) to help pay at least 1/8 of the cost of educating one student per year. Expenses include:

Yearly Tuition - $310
Room & Board - $240
Full cost per child a year - $550

Audrey Masimore will link you with one of our students in Kenya. You will in turn receive his/her progress reports and exchange correspondence, through email and regular mail. You are free to choose your level of giving. The most rewarding aspect of this program is the priceless relationship that is fostered between a child and his or her befriender.

Write to Your Child

The children highly value your regular correspondence with them. Besides being aware of the love, care and your good thoughts of them, the correspondence challenge them to improve their English reading and writing skills. Your care and contributions to their education inspire them to work harder for they want you their befriender to be proud of them. Many of these children,live in the rural set up, having a person that really cares about them is of deep emotional value to them.

At the moment, letters are delivered to your child/friend twice a year. As technology gradually improves at the school, you will be in a position to communicate with him/her more frequently.

We don't recommend sending anything of value to the children; though photos are fine as the children appreciate them. If there is something special you would like to have done for your child, we kindly request that you do it through the Program.

Thank you very much for your kindness and generosity
