Learn about our story!

Isn’t public school free in Kenya?
The Kenyan government pays for grades K-8. However, families have to pay for their children to attend high school.
What is the cost to send a girl in Kenya to high school?
The range of fees is determined by the quality of the school and if it is a day school or a boarding school. For example: $175 pays for a day scholar for one year in a local high school. Also, $650 pays for a top rated boarding school.
How do you choose the girls that you support?
We send out applications through Seavuria in October and those applicants are screened for us by our partners in Kenya and then sent here to us in November. We gather to read the applications and then use a rubric to determine our choices.
How is your scholarship different?
Our scholarship is different because the main goal is to build a global friendship. We do not want to just send money over to Kenya, we want to get to know the girls.
How do you know the money is benefitting?
We require that the girls send us transcripts of their grades each quarter.

Lets help educate deserving Kenyan Girls

My name is Audrey Benner. I am 15 and attending Vashon High School as a Sophomore. In my spare time I enjoy playing soccer, reading and working on my artwork. Two years ago my friends and I formed a group that helped to support the education of Kenyan Girls through Maasai Children’s Initiative. That summer I also went to Kenya to see the result of MCI’s fundraising for the Mara Hills Academy. I was astonished at how dedicated and appreciative these Kenyan Girls were towards there education. They valued their education far more than any American student, and they had reason to. When you educate a Kenyan girl you are giving her a life changing opportunity, no longer is their future to be married off at 14. Lets make sure everyone receives an opportunity for education.

Will your join us in our effort to educate Kenyan girls? A donation makes a great gift for birthdays or holidays. Your money will help raise scholarships for students who don’t have the money to go to school. The students chosen for scholarships are excelling in their education and are conscience of their future, setting goals that can only be achieved by their education. Help us give them a life changing opportunity by donating. Thank you for your consideration and time!
