Our Focus

Ndoto’s desire is to provide the next generation of Kenya with access to education and hope for a future in Jesus Christ. We run a sponsorship program to help kids go to school as well as a discipleship program to help them grow spiritually. Since our founding, we have seen nearly 300 students become sponsored. Join us and be an agent of change.

One person at a time.


Education is key to eradicating poverty. Therefore, we began a sponsorship program to send students to well-established schools in Kenya with good reputations and strong academic performance. We recruit sponsors for each student and create opportunities for them to develop a relationship with each other through exchanging letters and photos.

Discipleship is the spiritual investment in the lives of students. We aim to raise them up to be committed followers of Jesus Christ, and give them the tools they need to walk with Him closely and serve others in His name. We create opportunities for discipleship through weekly Bible studies, mentor relationships, gospel presentations, and service to the community.

Development is the long-term process by which we help to bring out the capabilities and possibilities in our students. We aim to bring the communities they live in to a more advanced and effective state by giving micro loans to young adults with promising business plans. We also assist students in getting internships and jobs as they complete their education.

They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.

Why Education?

There is very little free education in Kenya, so most parents in slum communities cannot afford the tuition needed for their children to be enrolled in school. However, education is necessary for students to break free from the poverty cycle. Without an education, this generation will forever struggle to find regular employment.

    Charity Anyango

    This week, we mourn the unexpected and untimely passing of a member of the Ndoto Family: Charity Anyango. Charity was born in 1995 and grew up in Obunga. She and her three younger siblings attended Salem Primary School where their mother, Mary, works as a teacher. Her father, William, sells books for a living. When Charity finished primary school, she secured a spot at St. Anne’s Buyangu Secondary School, became sponsored by Ndoto in 2011, and was able to graduate in 2013.

    A Few Plastic Chairs…

    Our church, which meets in a living room, is always overflowing. Each Sunday in the sitting room of the Ndoto office, dozens of people gather to study the Word of God chapter by chapter and verse by verse. Each Sunday, we pull the couch and desk chairs and benches and anything we can find together to make seats for those who will come. We always run out seats and space. About a year ago, we started renting chairs from the community center.

    Groundnuts with Baba Geoffrey

    As I walked deep into the Obunga slum with a few of my Kenyan co-workers, more and more kids began following us. Little Gift and his grandma were leading us to the house where we were going to meet Baba Geoffrey (“Baba” means “Father” in Swahili). Baba Geoffrey’s son was an Ndoto sponsored student, but he had recently graduated from college and is now a clinical officer! As we approached the house, out came this tall man with speckles of grey hair and the biggest smile I have ever seen!
