Charity description

Kenyan Educational Support logo
Kenyan Educational Support (KES) supports education in Kenya, by sponsoring student scholarships for significantly disadvantaged children to be boarding students at Bahati Division Academy (BDA) and other Kenyan schools; and by contributing to resources and facilities for BDA which will assist the education of these students.

Over 30 years ago, Simon Brister sponsored a Kenyan boy, giving him the formal education he deserved but couldn’t afford. That boy - Joseph Kiuna, prospered and became a successful businessman. Grateful for his chance and wanting to support others like him, Joseph set up Bahati Division Academy (our link school) in his hometown of Nakuru.

To continue helping more and more bright, talented but terribly poor children receive an education and achieve their potential, Simon Brister then set up KES to sponsor students and support the school. From humble beginnings, the school is now growing and the students are excelling. KES has also grown and now has a team of six trustees working hard to raise awareness and funds for a deserving cause.
