We encourage you to get involved with Friends of Ngong Road. An investment in Friends of Ngong Road literally transforms lives. You can sponsor a child, donate, give time or help us spread the word – whatever you desire. It all makes a huge difference in the lives of the children.
Sponsorship is one of the most rewarding engagements you can have with the students in the program. You’ll learn about their background, current life, school life, hopes and challenges and more. You’ll help cheer them on and provide mentorship and accountability. Sponsors can be individuals, families, or “shared” sponsors where multiple individuals or families sponsor one student together. Sponsors make a multi-year commitment and build a relationship with their child in Kenya through regular letter and email writing. Learn more
While about half of the per-child costs are covered by the sponsorship fee we must raise the other half every year. Donations provide important services like two meals a day, one on the weekend, regular healthcare, and a supportive caseworker and community. Learn more
Since its founding, Friends of Ngong Road has benefited from the involvement of great volunteers. We are always looking for volunteers for both short and long term projects. Volunteers are needed to help with events, communications/marketing, mailings, data entry and more! If you have an idea, we want to hear it! If you’re interested in volunteering please email [email protected].
Spread the word
Do you belong to a book club, fraternal organization, church or club that would like to hear our story? We’d love to speak to your organization.
Attend an Annual Gathering
In the autumn of every year we schedule gatherings with our sponsors, donors, volunteers and friends. During the COVID-19 pandemic we have switched these to virtual gatherings. We schedule the live events so they are convenient for our U.S., European, and African supporters.
Visit us in Kenya
We invite you to visit us in Kenya. You may want to attend our annual August Camp, tour the office and schools, or join one of our group travels. If you would like to visit us, please let us know at [email protected]. Learn more
