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.

Educate

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.

Disciple

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.

Develop

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.

    Ready to Roll


    by Fred Sadia Next week, Kenya has a one-week school break. Every time our students come home, Ndoto becomes their first stop. We always prepare everything ahead of time for them to find a perfect place to chill out with their friends and to study. The Ndoto Library is one such space. The students enjoy coming here regularly to pick out a book of their choice and just read. They also spend time learning from one another and sharing the experiences they’ve had in school.
