THE GIFT OF EDUCATION

After 8th grade (Form 8 in Kenya), children leave the home for Secondary School. The average cost/year of Secondary School is $700. From there, based on test scores, they may qualify to attend a College or University. Those who do not qualify for Secondary School or College, are eligible to attend Polytechnical school to learn a trade. The average cost per year of Trade School is $1,000, while the average cost of attending University is $2,000. We currently have 45 children in Secondary School, 15 in Trade School, 11 in College/University, and another 6 waiting to join College/University. Educational fees have grown to over $30,000/year and remain one of our greatest needs.

 

Would you consider making a monthly, quarterly or annual gift to our Educational Fund?  Any gift amount would be greatly appreciated.  The Gift of Education not only has the potential to change a life, it can change an entire family!
