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.

She and I were discussing obstacles she has faced. She explained how she used to have to work so hard despite being pregnant with her last child, bending and carrying things with no help and even opposition from others who saw her honesty as an obstacle to their selfish ambitions.

    What Will We Be About?


    Since Ndoto hired its first Kenyans in Obunga, every staff member had the same primary objective: look after a group of students. Everyone then had one smaller responsibility: Susan did the bookkeeping, Mama Bon handled the money, and so on. This has been an inspiring way of organizing a team around a key vision. So there’s no time like the present for change! Joshua’s heart for Ndoto students is legendary and contagious Why change?

    The Professor


    by Fred Sadia “I waved at him multiple times a day for months as I was passing by,” Allison Schlack remembered. “I kept wondering about this young man who was out there morning to evening 7 days a week. He never seemed to have a day off – rain or shine.” Who was this young man? John M. spent the better part of his childhood staying with his mom at their rural home, until 2011 when he finished his primary education and moved to Kisumu to stay with his elder sister.
