Educating students has been at the forefront of our conversation since our earliest beginnings as a non-profit organization. In 2012, Everyone’s Child began providing scholarships to orphaned secondary students at Bishop Edward Donovan Secondary School in Lanet Umoja. In 2016, EC’s Program Coordinator, William Aludo, initiated a mentoring program for these students, introducing them to skills necessary for leading active, successful lives.
Between 2012 and 2018 over 40 students have received an EC scholarship. Without this assistance, most of these students would not have the opportunity to complete their high school education. In 2018, the government made secondary school free for all Kenyan students, asking families to pay for their children’s school lunches and uniforms. EC continues to offer scholarships to orphaned students whose families are unable to cover these costs. Click here to learn how you can support these secondary students.
Everyone’s Child has its origins with “Kids in Kenya”; a non-profit organization set up in the late 1990’s to support school-aged children in Kenya. Between 1998 and 2008, Kids in Kenya sponsored the construction of three primary schools, beginning with Lanet Umoja Primary School in 1999, followed by Nakuru Teacher’s Primary School in Kiti in 2001, and The Lord Ranjuera Primary School in Kampi Ya Moto in 2003.
In 2017 Everyone’s Child raised funds to complete two preschool classrooms in Lanet Umoja. In April 2017 we held a dedication for one of these classrooms. Currently plans are underway to build additional classrooms at the Miruya Primary School in western Kenya. Please click here if you would like to learn more about this effort.
