Laptop for University Student


Education is extremely important to Kibera families, who recognize its potential to lift students out of poverty. Unfortunately, many families can’t afford the costs of a quality education, which include school fees, school uniforms, and school supplies such as textbooks. Currently, we provide 64 scholarships to primary students attending local schools; secondary students most of whom attend boarding schools outside of Kibera; and post- secondary students who attend vocational schools and colleges.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many universities have started online courses. This donation will cover the costs of a laptop for a university student, helping them stay connected and enabling them to keep up with their studies. 

If you wish to be matched with a specific student on an ongoing basis, primary school sponsorships are $360/year and high school sponsorships are $720/year. You will receive regular updates about the student and their progress. Send us an e-mail at for more information.

Uweza is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are tax-deductible.

If you are donating as a gift for a loved one, be sure to let them know with one of our holiday cards.
