Transforming lives of Kenya’s Brightest Children

Starehe Schools’ mission is straightforward: to reverse poverty in a generation – by providing Kenya’s brightest children from the most underprivileged communities with a quality education they would otherwise miss out on; one that opens the doors to University and a secure career beyond.

The boys’ school opened over 50 years ago and was joined by the girls’ school in 2005. Each provides a safe home all-year round, world class academic teaching and personal development that encourages self-reliance and a sense of social responsibility.

As you will discover, the achievements of these schools are stellar, but while they receive some government funding, they rely heavily on the generosity of supporters, both corporate and individual, to continue their work.

By sponsoring a pupil, contributing funds to a capital project or helping with the schools’ general running expenses, you can dramatically improve the life chances not only of the students, but of their families and wider communities as well.

We thank you for your interest.
