Help Kenya’s Street Kids Achieve Success

The St. Mary's Child rescue program serves 300 poor Kenyan children, many of whom come from the slum areas of Nyeri. It provides a residential program which includes a high school education at St. Mary's Secondary School. Through a special peer-mentoring program, the school achieves outstanding educational results for its students and 80% of the graduates are admitted to the National University (public school graduates average 2% admission). The Child Rescue Program provides access for children who otherwise would be educationally excluded from the public system, enabling them to escape from their poverty and become productive, contributory leaders in Kenyan society. Your contribution will help sponsor an education -- and a future -- for deserving street and slum children.
