Meet Some of the Sponsored Students
Project: Sponsorship Program
Completed: Started January 2012 - Ongoing
In the community of Ewaso Ngiro it is rare for a student to finish grade 8; it is almost unheard of for students to continue their education into secondary school. The girls are often married off at a very early age (12-13) to obtain dowry money and the boys are taken from school to tend to the livestock. Many children have lost a parent to disease or misfortune and their families have little money to spare for school fees.
