Gifts for Students


Sometimes sponsors ask us what kinds of gifts they can send to their students. In general, we discourage our students from asking for things in their letters to sponsors, and in Kenya we ensure that students’ basic needs are provided for. However, we do allow sponsors to send small gifts to their students if they feel so moved! Remember that everything our sponsors send has to travel in people’s suitcases, so they may be delayed in getting to students and they need to be smaller and lighter.

Here are a few suggestions that our Kenyan staff has recommended for different age groups!
