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.



Zakayo is a hardworking and ambitious young man from a small rural village in Kenya. His life has been challenging since his mother left him and his sibling under the care of their grandmother and never sent them any financial support. However, Zakayo refused to let his circumstances hinder his academic ambitions.

He joined our program in 2021 after being recommended by our contact person in his village. Since then, he has been a dedicated and diligent student, consistently demonstrating his commitment to his education. He recently sat for his high school exam and performed well, earning a C+.

Zakayo understands the importance of education in breaking the cycle of poverty and is eager to pursue his university education. He recognizes this opportunity not just for himself but also for his family and community. He is determined to utilize his education to create positive change and uplift his community.

As part of his transition, we are looking for a new sponsor or co-sponsors to support his university education. Helping Zakayo go to university would be an investment in a young man with much potential. Your support would give him the resources to pursue his dreams and create a brighter future for himself and his community. Zakayo is self-motivated and hardworking, and your support would enable him to achieve his full potential.

Will you consider being Zakayo’s sponsor and help him achieve his goal of pursuing higher education?

About this Sponsorship

Sponsoring a university student costs $2,100 a year or $175 per month, and co-sponsoring with another sponsor costs $1080 a year or $90 monthly. This amount will cover the student’s tuition fees, monthly upkeep, accommodation, and medical care.

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.”
