The Kenyan government provides free education for all children through grade eight. Attending high school, however, is the financial responsibility of families, and in many cases this is a burden that simply cannot be met.

The Kerio Valley District Church Council, a group of twenty churches, has established a team that distributes aid to students seeking additional education. The team screens for the most motivated students and for those with the greatest financial need. We at First Congregational UCC then pair the selected students with enthusiastic sponsors, enriching the lives of students and sponsors alike.

Costs of the program:
$650/$325 provides full or half sponsorships.
$500/$1000 a year provides partial university sponsorships.
Donations of any amount are accepted for the Student Supplemental Fund.
