Students in need of Sponsorship
In Kenya secondary school education is not free and the fees are around the same amount of money that the parents of our students earn in a year. It is for this reason that a lot of children are not able to move to secondary school after completing their primary school education unless they are lucky enough to be sponsored by a charity.
SAAS is approached by many students asking for sponsorship for their secondary school fees in order to allow them to continue with their studies. We talk to all students that come to us and look at their circumstances to see if we can help them.
All potential SAAS students undergo a thorough vetting process which involves interviewing the potential student, their family, talking to their peers in the community and their last headmaster. We do this to ensure that these students will be able to gain the most from the sponsorship given.
As you can expect we have more students needing sponsorship than we do sponsors and we are always on the look out for more sponsors for our students.
All sponsorship money is spent on the student's fees, books, uniforms and any other equipment they need.
