Education Sponsorship

Education is a basic human right

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!

Out of Afrika is a charity that works at grass root level in Kenya, promoting education to orphans, disadvantaged children and youth to promote education to orphans and disadvantaged children to increase self-sufficiency and long term sustainability.

From the three children that the charity supported in 1996 the organisation today is sponsoring 250 children. Out of Afrika maintains strong ties with the children, their families, local partners and the wider community, developing projects through consultation with them to support their needs and to assist in the alleviation of rural poverty. Through the provision of education Out of Afrika works to improve children and their community’s self-sufficiency and long-term sustainability.
Out of Afrika believes that education is a fundamental children’s right and should not depend on the economic capacity of their parents. Through the provision of education Out of Afrika works to improve children and their community’s self-sufficiency and long-term sustainability.

We believe that every child has the basic human right of education, health care, a safe home environment, adequate food and basic necessities.

Education is an investment and the right of every child. By investing in a child’s future we are making a long term and sustainable investment in them and that of the country. In the long term educating children is one way to eradicate poverty.

Education will ensure that young people will be actively engaged in their development and live in an economically, socially sustaining, safe and healthy environment.


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.

Who is a sponsor? 
A sponsor is an individual who gives hope to a needy child. Your sponsorship will give the opportunity to provide desperately needed education and healthcare to a specific child in Kenya. 

Will I be able to choose my sponsored child? 
We have a list of children in need of sponsorship and you can choose to sponsor a girl or boy from those or if you prefer we can choose a child for you.

How long does sponsorship last? 
A sponsorship lasts for as long as the child remains in education or until the sponsor feels it is necessary to cancel. Sponsorship finishes when a child leaves secondary school. A sponsored child may have the opportunity to continue into higher education or vocational training and the sponsor may wish to continue supporting their child through continued education. If the sponsor needs to cancel the sponsorship Out of Africa will continue to assist the child until another sponsor is found. 

May I write to my sponsored child? 
We encourage sponsors to write to their child. If a child is too young to write, they will be helped by a teacher. Children love to receive picture postcards and items such as book marks, stickers, ribbons and other flat, inexpensive treats. 

May I send gift packages to my sponsored child? 
Many sponsors ask about sending parcels to their child. A4 envelopes are acceptable but sending larger, bulkier packages through the post is very risky and expensive for the sponsor and the organization to administer. 

What will I receive from OOA? 
If you decide to sponsor a child with OOA, you will receive a photograph and details about your child. We will send you letters from the child and school reports on your child’s progress twice a year and a photograph once a year. Should you visit Kenya on holiday or business you are welcome to meet your child. We can make arrangements for transport to the school/home for you. 

What exactly does my sponsorship pay for? 
The sponsorship pays for school fees, uniform, shoes, other clothing, school lunch, books, stationery, medical fees and general basic needs for the child. 
Sponsorship costs for a primary school child is £15 a month. Sponsorship for a secondary school child varies from £250-£300 per year. The amount depends on the individual school the child attends. 

Can companies and organizations sponsor a child? 
Individuals, groups, companies or churches can all sponsor a child. Once the money is collected it can be paid monthly or annually.
