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.

Isaiah 61:3

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.

    Michael Got His Visa!

    by Allison Schlack When it comes to travel, our story is one of struggle.  As with most couples, we had a desire to get to know each other’s families and friends, see where they grew up, and get to know some of their life.  It becomes exponentially harder, however, when one of us is Kenyan and the other American.  I’ve gotten the privilege of seeing and participating in many facets of Michael’s life, yet there was always an unmet desire for him to do the same.

    Years of Prayers

    “Since I came to this church I got a Bible of my own. I can sit down at home and just read it myself.” – John, 34 “Most churches’ leaders look down on youths, but at our church, I have a place in building the body of Christ.” – Imelda, 27 Long before Ndoto was launched to educate, disciple, and develop at-risk youth, Allison and several other volunteers worked to help plant a church in the middle of Obunga.

    Letters are Awesome

    by John Seale Thank you to all of our wonderful sponsors who wrote letters to our students this year. We packed them in suitcases and they’ve just arrived in Kisumu. The letters are a huge project, both in the US and in Kenya. We currently have 374 sponsorship relationships, and we hope for two letters for each every year! While it’s a huge project, it’s very rewarding and something that I look forward to.
