One Month of High School Sponsorship


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.

This donation will cover the costs of a scholarship for one high school student for one month, which includes school fees, school uniform, and textbooks.

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.
