"Education is the movement from darkness to light."
In sub-Saharan Africa, education is often the only path out of poverty. For too many children, pursuing an education is a constant financial struggle. Our sponsorship program's goal is to match concerned individuals and families with vulnerable children in Busia County, Western Kenya. We hope to form lasting relationships between sponsor and child that help to empower the children to build lives of purpose and leadership.

Thanks to the generosity of Greater Promises Ministries of Pennsylvania, Vitalis is now attending Athi River Youth Polytechnic outside of Nairobi.
