Sponsor a child
We believe that the best way to equip a child for the future is to give them a good education.
We need sponsors to make this happen!
We are looking for sponsors to help pay for a child's education. If you think that you could help, please read our sponsor guidelines and privacy statement, then select the Sponsor a Child button or contact us at Calvary.Zion@googlemail.com for more information
Frequently asked questions
Why do we need sponsors?
Kenyan state schools do provide free education at primary level but the classes are very crowded and equipment is not always available.
The Trust recognises that the key to the children’s future is a quality education, so to achieve this we aim to have the Calvary Zion children educated at fee-paying schools where the class sizes are smaller and the teachers are more dedicated.
What does Calvary Zion Children's Home Support Trust do?
The Trust finds sponsors to pay the fees for individual children, preferably for as long as the child attends school and college.
We collect the donations in our charity bank account and make a bank transfer twice a year to the Calvary Zion Children's Home bank account in Kenya.
How much does it cost?
It costs about £300 (UK pounds) per year for a child to attend a fee-paying primary school and slightly more for secondary schools. This can be paid monthly or in a lump sum once a year. We can claim Giftaid on behalf of UK tax payers.
What if I can't pay the full amount?
You could donate money towards school clothes or equipment for a child. Use the Sponsor a Child button and select the single payment option.
Here is an idea of typical costs per child for a year:
How to pay
Choose how much to pay monthly
The Trust would prefer for sponsors to pay regularly on an ongoing basis to see a child through school and perhaps to college or a vocational course. In this way you can identify with a particular child and take an interest in their development. Some people sponsor more than one child.
However, we understand that it's not always possible to commit to a regular or long-term payment so there is an option for you to choose a one-off donation for the education fund. This is still an important contribution to a child's future.
