Sponsor a Child

Main Photo.jpg

Sponsoring a child’s education is one of the greatest gifts you can give to a child in Mukuru. You are giving them an opportunity to take their lives into their own hands, an opportunity they lack due to circumstances far out of their control. A quality education puts students on the path towards a successful future. A future where they can meet their basic needs and build a better life for their own families. 

Sponsorship allows donors the opportunity to build a relationship with the child whose education they are supporting, by sharing letters and photos throughout the year. You have the opportunity to watch a student as they progress in their studies and grow into an adult.

Sponsorship costs $1750 on an annual basis. This donation covers the student’s school fees, room and board, uniforms, shoes, toiletries and school supplies for the year.

We can also arrange for you to meet with your sponsored child if you ever have plans to visit Nairobi, Kenya. Micato Safaris is the expert and can help organize the best safari trip for you in conjunction with a memorable visit with your sponsored child.

“As I write this letter, my heart is overwhelmed with happiness that I can not explain. Going on with my studies to the best level possible has always been my only desire. Here I am taking my undergraduate degree. What can I say? Trust me no amount of words can express my gratitude for all the effort you put to see me make it through” - Excerpt from a student’s letter to her sponsor.
