Sponsor a Student

All of our students are extraordinary and have overcome a lot in their education journey. While we’d like to tell all of their stories, let’s start with some stories selected especially for you.


High School

While we were visiting our students’ homes in Laikipia, a young boy approached us. His name was Peter, and though he had not filled out a formal application, he marched right up to us and asked if we would help him go to school. We liked his spirit and initiative and gave him a chance to present his case to us.

Peter, who currently attends Naromoru Primary School, scored 340 marks out of 500 in the most recent term at school. This put him in the top ten students of his class – an impressive feat, to be sure! He lives with his family in a single-room rental house. Peter is expected to join high school next year, but his mother cannot raise the amount needed to pay for his schooling. She is a day laborer in an impoverished neighborhood where jobs are hard to come by. In order to supplement his mother’s meager income, Peter raises rabbits and sells them when they come of age. There is no electricity in Peter’s neighborhood, and therefore he must complete his homework at school before making the long walk home.

Peter understands that with three children to look after, it is very unlikely that his mother will be able to pay his school fees. He hopes to find a sponsor to help him continue his studies uninterrupted. Peter is clearly confident and determined – these traits, combined with his willingness to take the initiative, will surely help him succeed in high school. Help this bright young man continue to pursue his education by sponsoring him today!

About this Sponsorship

Sponsoring a secondary student is $1,020 a year, or $85 per month. This amount covers the students’ tuition fees, and buys school supplies, uniforms, shoes, and other personal effects required to live at boarding school.

The Sponsor Experience

  • Cassie and Elijah

    “When we signed up to sponsor our students, we hoped it would help improve their lives. What we didn’t expect was how it would change ours.

    Our students have become our teachers about life, gratitude, optimism, and finding joy in each moment. Supporting an education is a direct investment into these students and their future. Through a sponsorship with Moja Tu, you have the opportunity to create a meaningful relationship with a student that will change not only their life, but yours as well.”
