Inua Village scholarship was first started in May of 2017, starting with profiling 7 needy students in secondary school. This was informed by the fact that many students from poor families drop out of school, are affected with perennial absenteeism because they lack schools to keep them learning.
We are partnering with different Secondary schools, Universities, colleges and Vocational Institutes to ensure as many students as possible from poor backgrounds transition from primary and into higher levels of educations and complete their education to become responsible citizens. To date we have profiled over 800 students with over 350 receiving sponsorships in the last four years.
The foundation targets poor but uniquely talented youth across Kenya and with special attention to the communities where we operate. Those who qualify are often very talented in particular areas and or have very good academic performance.
Our scholarship works in two ways;
You are free to select a student of your choice from the profiles appearing in list below- This method allows you to support one or several students, exchange letters and if possible, mentor them. The package is pre-determined by the course or school requirements
You can donate a lump sum starting as low as 10$ and the foundation will allocate this money at random based on the level of need among the students.
Our scholarship covers tuition, living costs (where applicable), school/college materials, uniforms where applicable and examination costs. A sponsor is required to pay between 20USD and 100USD per month depending on the course or school level the student attends.
You also have an option to save $3 to $5 for your student in our SACCO platform which they can redeem at the end of their studies.
