Shelter of Hope Kenya (SOH) is a Christian non-profit organization registered under the societies act. In 2015, Shelter of Hope began a school in the rural community of Kagan in Homa Bay County. Now they have 200 students in Kindergarten to grade 8, many of whom come from poor economic backgrounds. Orphaned children reside in the two dormitories on campus. In addition, Shelter of Hope has a school in Kiumbu slum in Nairobi where another 350 students attend. Sponsorship for students are needed to help the school operate. In 2019, the school in Kagan was ranked first overall in the national testing of grade 8 students!

STUDENT SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM: Funding is needed due to COVID-19 and the shortfall in education sponsorships. 13 classrooms are in need of assistance for the upcoming year beginning in January 2021 at $250 per month. We have also made available student sponsorships at $40/month which are needed for 90 students to assist in tuition fees, medical care, nutrition and other essential needs. 

Your prayers and support is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
