EDUCATE

Ndoto's student sponsorship program supports the goals of education and discipleship in Kenya. Through Ndoto's grants to Ndoto Kenya, 274 students were sponsored in 2019. These students were enrolled in schools from kindergarten through university level. They received basic school supplies, medical care, and tuition and fees. In 2019, 59% of Ndoto 12th graders scored C or above on their final exams, compared to just 27% of Kenyan students nationwide. 69% of Ndoto 8th graders scored above 300 on their exams, compared to just 23% of Kenyan students nationwide. Additionally, 90% of Ndoto parents attended participatory parent meetings in 2019.

Population(s) Served

Ndoto Kenya employs full-time staff members to care for the students' spiritual, emotional, and physical needs. Ndoto Kenya also hosts student retreats, service days, a community church, Bible studies, and more for sponsored students. The Ndoto Community Church is supported through the Sponsorship program, though it is open to the community as well as sponsored students. The church had 197 members and even more regular attendees in 2020.

Population(s) Served

Ndoto's third objective is development. If people in the community are able to access stable jobs that pay a living wage, then many of the challenges facing the community will disappear. Therefore Ndoto Kenya works to create sustained economic development in two ways: starting businesses directly and providing training and support for existing business leaders in the community. In 2019, Ndoto supported a chicken business in Kenya that plans to transition from producing eggs to producing meat to become more profitable. Ndoto is also supporting two planned land purchases in Kenya. The first is a smaller plot of land close to the current compound for expanding programs and job creation. The second is larger and just out of town and will become a private school. Over the past 11 years, Ndoto Kenya has loaned $27,340 to many different entrepreneurs, and 96.3% has been repaid or is being repaid.
