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.

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.

Local public schools in Kenya are often poor, but Ndoto loves being able to send students to boarding schools when their grades qualify. Evans with his luggage Why boarding schools? Kids growing up in slums may have many factors limiting their success in school, such as proper nutrition or space to study at home, and they may be pressured to work by their family rather than study.

    Joining the Team

    By John Seale, new Director of Operations Have you ever had one of those times when you felt like you were biting off more than you could chew? I had one of those way back in the summer of 2006. I had an unpaid internship lined up when somebody invited me to take a trip to Kenya. Being unpaid, my boss couldn’t say no, but since my internship would be very busy, I decided it would be too much.

    Through the Eyes of a Student

    Geoffrey, a high school student, sponsored by Ndoto to go to a nationally ranked high school, received an opportunity to go to Morocco.  Upon his return, he wrote a story telling us about his experience. If he had not been able to go to his high school, he would have not received this opportunity. This is the kind of change and opportunity that sponsorship through Ndoto is providing students from Obunga with.
