Helping Young people achieve their full potential
Creating Better Futures through Education
Out of Afrika believe that education is the key to overcoming poverty. We are passionate about helping young people achieve their full potential and creating better futures free of poverty through education and skills training.
Children's rights should not have to depend on the economic capacity of their parents. The right to a good education is the most fundamental right of a child. Unfortunately due to poverty many children miss out on an education. Parents or guardians are expected to provide everything from classroom construction, to books and uniforms for their child, as well as maintenance of the school. Consequently many parents simply do not have the money to send their children to school.
Many Kenyan families are subsistence farmers and for those lucky enough to have employment earn very little. Out of Afrika aims to link sponsors with needy children, many of whom are orphans, to enable them to continue their education.
We are very proud of this unique sponsorship program that is having a huge impact on the lives of so many young people in Kenya. What began with the sponsorship of 3-orphaned children has grown to the point where over 250 students are being sponsored.
Education is a basic human right
Yet those who need education the most – children living in poverty – are the least likely to attend and complete school.
‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’ – Nelson Mandela
Education is a human right that helps girls and boys reach their full potential in society. Yet millions of children in Kenya are still out of school. We are constantly looking for new sponsors willing to support a child through school. If interested please If you can help us support orphans and vulnerable children in need please Sponsor a child today!
Promoting education to orphans, disadvantaged children and youth.
Out of Afrika child sponsorship program has seen many children benefit through the program since we started with many receiving a good basic education and going on to secondary education and even college/university.
These children have the advantage of an education, improved health and living standards, increased confidence, motivation and aspirations for the future. To read more about our sponsorship program.click here -
If you give a man a fish he will eat for a day, if you teach a man to fish he will eat for life.
Almost everyone knowns the proverb: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”
But what good is teaching a woman to fish if she cannot afford a fishing pole? If her children are sick and she cannot leave them? If a middleman buys her fish for a pittance and keeps all the profit, because she cannot determine the market price?click here -
Buy a gift for your sponsored child
Should any sponsor want to order a gift for their sponsored child, you can do so by ordering through OOA online shop, you can pay by credit or debit card through paypal or by sending an email to kerry with your request. This allows sponsors to choose a gift from OOA online gift shop in the knowledge that these gifts will be bought in Kenya and given to the child.click here -
