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.

A local child correctional facility has been offering a Saturday afternoon time slot to Ndoto for over a year so that our students can pray and encourage the youth there.

    “I love you guys…and I am here for you!”

    by Moses Ondeche I had an opportunity to visit two of our new students in a school within the city, Robert A. and Chrispine O. at Kisumu Day High School. Chrispine is an orphan, and Robert only has his mother, who is rarely able to make it to visit him. They were not expecting me to visit, so that filled me with excitement as I got to the school! Little did I know that I would be plunged in over my head when class teachers wanted to meet with me and go through their academic achievements and weaknesses.

    Feels Like Coming Home

    Written by Allison Schlack   Ndoto graduate, Dan One morning at my desk, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a tall, confident man coming toward my door. Thinking we had a visitor, I glanced up between emails and saw the big, sweet smile of Dan, a former Ndoto student. I gave Dan a big hug and we began to chat. He started catching me up on life as a civil engineer in Nairobi, where they are constructing a bridge.
