Help us reach our High School donation goal!
Meet Mildred, she is a second year high school student. Her father and mother live in a slum of Nairobi called Kwa Njenga. Her father is a pastor and her mother runs a small school for impoverished children. Because both parents are serving their community they do not have enough income to afford to pay for Mildred to attend a good school. Mildred is a fine student and we are happy to give her the opportunity to receive a high quality education despite the financial restrictions on her family.
In Kenya the high quality high schools are boarding schools and the average cost for one year in school is $1022 for all of the student’s needs. Students who are sponsored through Light Up Hope for high school education will also be given the opportunity to continue with the Joseph’s House program upon the completion of high school and to pursue university or trade school education. Sponsorship of our high school students will provide the following:
◦ All school fees and supplies, including room and board, uniforms and transportation to and from school on school breaks.
◦ Support for a suitable guardian and living space during the three annual school breaks. All of our students come from extremely impoverished backgrounds so when they are not in school their parents and guardians need help to provide for food, medical care and shelter for these students.
Goal: Raise $11,242 in the next 12 months to cover 11 currently unsponsored high school students.
