Orphans

With the help of our donors, Kipepeo Foundation sponsored several orphans from the Likoni slum and enabled them to complete their primary or secondary education.

Peter Mshila

Peter is in a secondary school.

His father lost his job and has been unemployed for almost a year which means the family cannot afford Peter’s school fees. Peter was sent home, being ask to come back with at least 13,000 KSh (£105) and clear the balance later.

Peter needs to raise 27,000 KSh (£220) in total to complete his education.

Please support Peter.

Thank you.

Ian Ogode

Ian is a bright boy. Ian is in 8th grade. He stopped attending school because his parents were unable to pay the costs. Thanks to our donors, we were able to find a new school for Ian and allowed him to continue learning.

Ian no longer needs our help.

Thank you for your support.

Ruth

Ruth is a girl from the slum in Likoni. We started supporting her when she was ten years old. She is an orphan and for two years, she has lived with the family of our director in Kenya, Haggai Amonde. Ruth is smart and clever, Haggai enrolled her in the 2nd class of a local elementary school.

Ruth has now found a new family and lives on the coast in a village outside Mombasa. She no longer needs our help.

Thank you for your support.

Christopher

Christopher was to ask to leave an overcrowded orphanage because he was not able to attract a sponsor. He was fourteen years old and was left without any means to support himself.

We have taken him on and helped him complete the primary school. We have sponsored his education, purchased his school uniform and shoes (compulsory in all schools) as well as textbooks, notebooks, pens and pencils, and we also paid for his accommodation.  Haggai Amonde was giving him private lessons for six months in order for Christopher to catch up with the rest of the class.

To help Christopher complete his primary education cost us in total just over £1,200.

Christopher now works as a shop assistant in Mombasa. He no longer needs our help.

Thank you very much for all your donations.

Ritah Alice

When we first met Ritah she was thirteen years old and wanted to become a detective. We supported her throughout the secondary school.

She has passed her A-levels and she is in a full-time employment in Malindi. She has grown into a confident young lady.

Thank you for your support.
