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.

She has worked for one of Ndoto’s supporters for many years and is approaching her retirement. When she heard that Ndoto would be looking for someone to take up the role for just a few hours a week, she was excited to offer her services! Her retirement is now right around the corner, and Ndoto is very excited to welcome Gail to the Ndoto team this month!

    Which Came First?

    Tobias spraying the chicken coop for pests and disease Last year may have been the Chinese Year of the Rooster, but for Ndoto this is the Year of the Chicken. We finally know that, at least here, the chicken comes first, and then comes sustainable income and jobs. An Ndoto student who used to sell eggs helped us realize that over 90% of the eggs consumed in western Kenya come from Uganda.
