Thanks for taking the time to visit our Wonderful page allowing us to take donations so we can provide scholarships to cover the secondary school fees for young children in Kenya.
Scholarships are required because village children often find that, whilst they attend primary school until they are 11 or 12, they are then needed in their families to work and help provide food. Whilst school fees are modest by Western standards, they are often unaffordable for impoverished families. The income for many Kenyan families is just enough for them to survive. This is made worse if a child has lost one or both parents to malaria, AIDS or other serious complaints. If children lose the opportunity to move onto secondary school they miss the chance to better themselves and improve the lot of their families.
What your money provides - it costs from just £325 (or £260 + gift aid) a year to provide a place at school, covering the student’s education and all boarding costs during their four years at secondary school. Donating through Wonderful.org is simple, fast and totally secure. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to RRBF and if you're a UK taxpayer then we are able to reclaim Gift Aid. And there are absolutely no charges. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - you raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
