Charity description

Starehe UK logo
"Starehe UK aims to secure the short and long term futures of the Starehe Centres in Nairobi Kenya by funding infrastructure projects and sponsoring students at Starehe Boys' and Girls' Centre. "

For almost 6 decades the Starehe Schools have been empowering students with an opportunity to escape poverty through access to a first class secondary education and a safe, secure home – free of charge. This support helps them create a bright future for themselves whilst making a valuable contribution to the development of their communities and Kenya at large.

To be able to continue offering free places to poor but gifted children the Starehe schools have to raise £850 to feed, clothe, educate and care for a child for one year. This includes 3 meals a day, 365 days a year, school uniforms and shoes, sports kit, extracurricular activities and housing in dormitories in the care of full-time house parents.

Starehe UK is a UK based charity raising funds to support the Starehe schools. We are happy to accept a one off donation, a regular monthly donation or supporters may sponsor a named student for the duration of their secondary education and receive regular updates and letters from the student.  Please email for details of how to start a student sponsorship and to be allocated a named student.
