Education is Everything
Youth Education Programs in Kenya
In 2016, we began identifying children in families who could benefit from support for educational school fees. These children are change-makers in their families, with a desire to create an impact in Kenya. 100 Humanitarians International currently sponsors 22 children of all ages in 7 different locations in Kenya. We offer opportunities for one to one sponsorship for girls in rescue centres.
Nashipae & Agnes – The Mau
Nashipae and Agnes are sisters with the same father and two different mothers. They are feisty, funny, and love to sing. We met Nashipae while visiting church in the remote Mau Forest in Kenya. We were able to find sponsors for the two girls, and they joined their boarding school in January 2018. You can help children like Nashipae and Agnes with a donation!
Ndee – The Maasai Mara
We began working with Ndee’s family in 2016. Ndee is 16 and in Form 2 in Secondary School. We have provided a cow, a goat named Buttercup, and garden boxes for Ndee’s family. Ndee was able to come with us on our November 2017 expedition to learn how to build garden beds and water storage systems, and to help us serve her community. She wants to be a surgeon.
Vincent – Bomet
Vincent is the oldest in his family, and when we met them, they were behind in his school fees. His mother is Mercy, who is a successful recipient of a Business Box for Families. He is now in Form 4, which is a Senior in high school in the U.S. He will graduate at the end of 2018 and would like to be a lawyer someday. We are excited to watch his progress!
Peresian and Masharen
Peresian and Masharen are Primary School children in Sekenani Village on the Maasai Mara. They are in Class 2 and Class 1, and are the oldest two in a family of six children. They are smart, funny, and love to play with friends, and love to learn. They are also shy and giggle a lot when we visit them. We have other children that you can help sponsor with a donation!
Jacinta – Narok
Jacinta lives at a safe house in Narok, where she ran so that she wouldn’t undergo Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and Early Marriage. She was brought to the safe house by her sister, who has been there for 9 years after running herself. Jacinta started form 1 this year after being sponsored by 100 Humanitarians.
Fred was the first student that we sponsored in Kenya. He is now in Form 3 and will graduate in 2019. Fred joined us on our November expedition to help build garden boxes and water storage systems. It has been awesome to watch him gain confidence over the past two years, and he is always ready with a smile and a hug.
I traveled to Kenya, Africa this past year in 2017 and what I gained from this experience was perspective. It also humbled me in a way I didn’t realize it could. I left Utah because I was mad at my ex for leaving me for another women. I was mad at the world and I felt lost, what do I do now. I can’t leave because I don’t have money, I dont have time. Well I found the time, I found the money and I left. The people I met, the friends I made and the experience I gained in just 10 days will last me a lifetime. It humbled me in a way that you can’t even describe, you can’t even imagine. You just have to go to Africa to find out.
I found myself in Africa. But what I will tell you is that these families are so grateful to have you come to their homes, they will give you gifts, and food. Maybe even chicken. They will give you something even if they don’t have it to give. The are willing to learn, they are eager to listen. They don’t know what they don’t know. This is why I believe in 100 Humanitarians is because it takes 100 hands to make a difference. We have to work together to change. The more hands and people involved the bigger the impact.Michelle
Deep in the heart of 100 Humanitarians are our stories.
Stories of joy. Stories of sorrow. Stories of heartbreak. Stories of fear.
Stories of love. Always love.
