Sponsorship FAQs

Except in cases of restricted sponsorships, we pool all of our sponsorship funds to ensure that all students have access to high quality education and holistic care.  We treat all of the students in our programs equally.

Sponsorship funds help cover the costs associated with educating all of the students at St Barnabas Orthodox orphanage and School. Examples include: providing three healthy meals every day; fueling our school bus that brings our students safely to and from school every day; filling our classrooms with books, art supplies, and calculators; retaining qualified and dedicated teachers, tutors, and cooks; maintaining a safe and welcoming campus; and much, much more.

Yes, if you mark your donation, “this donation is in honor of somebody” – they will be notified of your gift and we will direct on-going communications to the mailing address you provide.

To ensure that students without sponsors do not feel excluded, we aren’t able to accept gifts.

Child Sponsorship

Would you consider sponsoring a child at St. Barnabas orphanage?

A simple monthly commitment ensures your sponsored child will receive food, clothing, shelter, education, and healthcare. The sponsorship commitment is $100 a month. You can ensure a child does not go hungry, has clothes on his or her back, has a safe place to sleep, gets proper medical attention, and – nearly as important – an education. A formal K-12 education system does not exist in Kenya so that’s where we provide that with teachers, staff, and curriculum in a safe environment. The best path out of poverty and a chance at a good life lies in formal education. Let’s face it, for what you might spend on dinner for two at a restaurant you can provide a child hope for a better life while serving his or her basic needs in the process.

Scroll down and find the child you’d like to sponsor, and make it happen. It’s quick, simple and has an immediate impact. One person can make a difference and that person could be you.
