Why we believe in Sponsorship

FAQ's

Giving a Legacy of Hope by sponsoring a student is a wonderful way to help change the life of a student in need and bring hope to his or her entire community. Being a sponsor will give you the chance to build a new relationship with one special student who will know you by name as you correspond and share your lives with each other.

Orphans and vulnerable children all over the world suffer in silence. Born into poverty, these children and young adults live without access to education, medical care, adequate housing, clothing, appropriate food, or a chance for a better future. Maisha operates in the Nyanza Province of Kenya with the highest rates of HIV, malaria and poverty in the country which has left millions of children orphaned. Without education, the cycle of poverty and death continues. If not given the opportunity for education, girls are usually forced into marriage bearing children by age 13 and boys enter the labor force early. Education breaks this vicious cycle and enhances the quality of life for a child and their community.
