As we grow our programs to help these children with education and better lives, our costs are rapidly increasing:
Over 700 children are now enrolled at our two primary schools, the schools at Rodi and the newer one at Imbo, as well as our new middle school, the Lower Secondary. Our annual operational costs to feed, clothe and educate them, including about 150 who are boarding, is about $330,000. Our Rodi school is now considered the 2nd best primary school in the entire county!
We have 200 graduates in high schools and 20 in colleges and universities in Kenya. One of our second year high schoolers achieved the highest math score in the entire county!
In 2023 our budget for the high school tuition and expenses is $217,000 and that will significantly increase over the next few years. Our desire is for all of them to complete higher education if they are able.
