The Kenya Project partners with Utunzi, the Kenyan nonprofit comprised of Isabella, Jeremiah and other family members and community members who operate Mountain Park Academy named after Mountain Park United Methodist Church who sent initial missioners to Kenya in 2000. The Sponsorship program continues to grow as does the need for sponsors to support children in the community.
Student Sponsorship Program
Sponsors truly make a difference in the life of their children and their families. Only $25 a month allows a child to attend school receiving 2 meals per day, and provides funding for school uniforms, school supplies, books and medical care. The Kenya Project in partnership with Mountain Park Academy helps oversee the education and care of over 800 children.
Orphan Sponsorship Program
Orphans living in the Children’s Homes are also in need of sponsors. Sponsorships of $100 a month allow an orphan to live in one of the Upendo Children’s Homes with house parents and all that family living provides - food, their own bed, and a place to grow and learn. This also allows the child to attend school receiving 3 meals per day, and provides funding for school uniforms, school supplies, books and medical care.
All sponsors receive a welcome packet that introduces their child via a short biography, a photo and a letter or drawing from the child. Sponsors are encouraged to communicate with their child through The Kenya Project. Each year sponsors receive an additional bio, photo and letter from their child. The Kenya Project requests a minimum one year commitment for all sponsorships. To learn more about becoming a sponsor, click on the HOW TO SPONSOR A CHILD MENU BAR.
