2015 New Year’s Tuition Drive Progress : $1000 of $1000
The Tumaini Children’s Project works to provide opportunity to a group of orphans in Kisumu Kenya who otherwise would not have access to education. Due to the generosity of donors and sponsors, our children spend their days in a classroom, in a safe environment, rather than on the streets.
In January 2015, we are excited to provide further opportunity to a group of students who will register for high school and launch their secondary education. With this in mind, we are launching the second phase of our holiday drive: school fees for our new high school students!
The costs associated with a high school education are significantly higher and so we are actively raising funds to cover the school fees of two promising students: Elizabeth Kemintho and Kevin Omondi. We also encourage you to consider sponsorship, which will secure their seat in the classroom from term to term (which would amount to a commitment of $125/month). Click here for more information about the Child Sponsorship program.
These two students (L to R: Kevin Omondi, Elizabeth Kemintho) will be entering high school in January 2015. This is a rare opportunity for any child in Kenya and almost unheard of for an orphan/ vulnerable child. Please help us make sure they can go on to high school by sponsoring their school fees or making a donation to our Tuition Drive. Finishing high school would be an amazing achievement and would help break the cycle of poverty.
We are aiming to raise $1,000 for Kevin and Elizabeth (Note: Four students will begin high school in January, two of which already benefit from the generosity of TCP direct sponsorship). These funds will be directed to their school fees and boarding costs.
These students have worked hard to qualify in the entrance exams. Let’s enable them to bring their efforts to fruition.
The Tumaini Childrenʼs Project (TCP) is an international youth-focused, registered Canadian charity (registration #888977790RR0001) that provides hope and opportunity to orphaned Kenyan children affected by HIV/AIDS by caring for them, educating them and implementing sustainable development projects.
