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.

    The Lord’s Justice

    by Allison Schlack Justice. It’s a popular word. Millennials love it. Youth groups use it. Organizations make it their mission statement. It’s mentioned in Scripture. It’s a characteristic of God. Beautiful. Difficult. Implies wrongdoing and struggle. Overused (by me, too). And not seen often in our part of the world. So that’s what makes the following story all the more stunning… Mama Bon works with many of Ndoto’s youngest students I first heard of Alice when her younger brother joined Ndoto a few years ago as one of our new students.

    Black Panther and Potential

    By George Ochieng I had an opportunity to watch this movie last month, with themes cutting across leadership, kingdoms, betrayal, unexploited potential, cultural diversity, and more. They have this special mineral called Vibranium that everyone covets and are fighting over because of its diverse abilities. According to the movie, it is believed that the mineral was deposited on Earth 10,000 years ago by a meteorite. The metal is capable of absorbing waves and other vibrations thus it is used to make things like armor and weapons.

    The Lakers

    by Fred Sadia This is not a story about the Los Angeles basketball team landing in Africa, but rather it’s a story of young Ndoto girls and boys who go to a school called Lake Primary here in Kisumu. They acquired the name Lakers as a result of the love they have for each other and their resolve to remain united as a team. It’s a team composed of nine members: Purity (sponsored by Linda S.) and Georgina (sponsored by Richard & Chris T.), both of whom are in the 8th grade.
