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.

    I Could Have Dropped Out

    James is a perfect example of why we sponsor the students we do. He heard of Ndoto seven years ago and received a sponsorship in 2012 to go to high school. James is sponsored by Tim & Donna T. “Before joining, life was never easy on any side,” James told us last month. “I lost my dad when we were still young – I was in first grade. The memory is still fresh in my mind.

    Joy Like A River

    By Fred Sadia Two years ago as an Ndoto student, I was part of the Ndoto family that attended the burial ceremony of a fellow sponsored student who had passed away as a result of a football injury. The air at the burial grounds was engulfed in a somber mood. Family, friends, and relatives were all mourning the loss of a loved one. But in that cloud of gloom, there was a ray of hope.

    Something Good

    I was an Ndoto student by the grace of God. I graduated last December with a Bachelors Degree in Economics and Finance from Kenyatta University. I was born and raised in the Obunga slum in Kisumu, Kenya. I got sponsored by Ndoto in 2010, when I was joining high school. Life was not easy before I got a sponsorship. Most people believed that nothing good could come from a slum. I am glad that I can stand firm and give a testimony: Ndoto saw an opportunity for something good from this slum.
