We support some of the most at-risk children with an education. Hear more of our story – “Life is a Journey”

Change a life forever. Sponsor a student.
"I looked in the eyes of a parent who probably wouldn't survive the year and I promised we would look after her children. I am determined to keep my word." --Sally Kenney
Education changes everything
Our program seeks out children who have the ability to succeed but not the means. The number of children enrolled has grown quickly. When school opened in January of 2007, 60 sponsors had been recruited and a corresponding 60 children were on their way with school uniforms, shoes and school fees paid. We now support over 368 students with many on the waiting list.
