Shining Scholars (High School)
Shining Brighter (College | University)
Empowering her through education!
When you choose sponsor a young girl in school in Kenya, you are truly changing her future! UNESCO (2016) notes that only 46% of girls are in secondary school (High School), which leaves even less who attend College or University. Did you know that High Schools require fees from students? School fees make it nearly impossible for most to attend after grade 8 and girls face this harsh reality more so than boys when resources are available.
Shining Scholars Sponsorship
The Angaza Project partners with local High Schools in Kibera, her parent or guardian, and YOU to offer her a path to a brighter future.
Attending school can help her remain unavailable to certain dangers that lurk in the community and empowers her future. Being able to attend school also provides her with other interventions such as a daily meal, access to water, sanitation and health.
When you sponsor her for $25 a month, you will be able to:
Have a personal match to a girl!
Remove the school fee barrier for her to stay in school (includes a meal at school)!
Provide her a monthly supply of feminine hygiene care (which also helps avoid absences over a period)
Receive her termly grade reports
Receive photos of her with our ground visits & send/receive letters with our ground visits
And, truly change her future!
Shining Brighter Sponsorship (College or University)
The Angaza Project has relationships with several Colleges and Universities in the greater Nairobi area that support Shining Brighter and these relationships are growing. Many of our young ladies may receive Government Sponsorship to a College or University for most of the fees (which is amazing!). The remaining fees that are not covered are what keeps the girls from leaving Kibera to go to College. Shining Brighter Sponsorship helps meet the gap in fees the girls face which provides a path to them to leave Kibera for College and work toward a brighter future.
Fees vary based upon the Institution, but on average thus far, we have found it to be close to what the High School sponsorship is, believe it or not! (a few are slightly higher).
When you Shine Brighter with us (Choose an amount of $30 a month or more), you will be able to:
Contribute to the Shining Brighter Scholarship and be part of helping her from Kibera to College.
As a contributor or sole sponsor, you will receive updates, semester grade reports and photos of the young lady you have impacted!
Provide her with a monthly supply of feminine hygiene care
Send/receive letters with our ground visits
The more support provided means more girls going from Kibera to College! She lives at campus in most situations (unless a more local institution) so this allows her to truly leave Kibera!
Note: We also have some girls that do not receive the Government Sponsorship which leaves them under public tuition costs which can be out of reach for them. In these challenging circumstances, we also seek other training opportunities to still help them forward and Shining Brighter Scholarships can also be made available for this since it is often close to the noted gap above.
