Tuition and Supplies

Kupenda’s child sponsorship program covers boarding fees, medical care, supplemental staff, and food for children in primary school (grades 1-8), secondary (high school), vocational institutions, and college. Although the Kenyan government provides free primary school for all children, such coverage does not include the cost of special needs and boarding schools that are necessary for many students with disabilities. Kupenda helps families access funding for these schools and also connects parents to other scholarship programs for their children.  Additionally, parents with means are encouraged to help families impacted by disability with less resources. Kupenda’s education programs enable over 200 children with disabilities to enroll in full-time education programs each year.
