Review for Kenya Self-Help Project, Burlington, VT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had the good fortune to be one of the original donors to the Kenya Self-Help Project beginning back in 2005. Let me say that if anyone is looking for a way to make a difference in the future of a young person living in the developing world, they need look no further than this organization. First of all, all monies go directly to the education of one's sponsored student. As the sponsor, you become an integral part of the life of your student. Letters to sponsors are required at least four times a year. You will also receive all grade reports of your student including photos from time to time. I truly have come to see my student as a friend. We've come to know one another's families and ways of life. I am proud to say that my dear Winny is now in her third year at Nairobi University studying for a degree in media studies/journalism. As part of her program of studies she is involved in community service work in her hometown. This continues to be a requirement of KSHP as long as the sponsored students are in school as a way of giving back for all they have received. No question but that your donation will be well used!
