Programs

School Sponsorship: Kenya Connect's School Sponsorship program is based on a unique model that is geared towards creating a foundation for global exchange and cultural development. Through school sponsorship and associated fundraising, schoolchildren are provided with an opportunity to become intimately familiar with the lives of less fortunate children and communities. Further, by encouraging schoolchildren to participate and observe first-hand how their efforts promote grassroots development, Kenya Connect's School Sponsorship program is able to facilitate character development and potentially build a commitment to philanthropy at an early age. Since Kenya Connect's inception in 2002, students around the world have raised money to help improve schools in Kenya. Among the many accomplishments are 20 water tanks installed at schools, renovated classrooms, and uniforms and materials provided to needy schools.
