According to Unicef, 1.2 million primary school-age children in Kenya are unable to attend school. At VWF, we know that children are the future of any community, so we began Victoria Watoto Schools in Mbita to meet this need. This private, Christian school is funded 100% through the private donations.
Victoria Watoto Schools is centrally located in the city of Mbita, which is on Lake Victoria. We currently offer three grades:
Baby Class, PP1, and PP2.
In addition to core academics, students receive training in Bible, crafts, music, art, athletics, and martial arts. Students also receive two nutritious meals per day.
When you partner with VWS, you do more than help a child, you help a community. Many of these children are orphaned and are being raised by grandparents and others who have little or no source of income. Other children come from large families, with single parents, or even two-parent homes where they struggle to make ends meet. Giving these children an education gives them the tools they need to have a better future and lessens the burden on their caretakers.
Your sponsorship of $35/month will feed and educate one of our deserving children. You can simply give a one time donation below, or contact us via our email address firstname.lastname@example.org for information about becoming a sponsor.
