Child Sponsorship

Kindfund’s Child Sponsorship seeks to encourage a real living relationship between you and a child whom you will be supporting indirectly through your long-term personal commitment to Kindfund.

We will send you regular reports and photographs of your sponsored child and encourage them to write or send drawings. If you like, we can bring them a photograph of you and can occasionally deliver small presents to your sponsored child.

A nursery child can be sponsored from £5/€8/$10 per month for a period of three years, after which the child will normally move to primary school and off our direct programme. At this point we will give you the opportunity to support a new nursery child if you wish.

An orphan on a Kindfund daily feeding programme can be sponsored from £10/€15/$20 per month. Orphans living in one of our homes can be sponsored from £20/€29/$40 per month.

Sponsorship of a child with physical or learning disabilities is from £15/€22/$30 per month. Children who are deaf can be funded to board at Isiolo School for the Hearing Impaired as funds permit. Back in 2007 we funded three blind children at an integrated primary school. In 2008 we then became the main sponsors for this unit, feeding 20 visually impaired children and improving their living conditions. In 2015 we are working with a family to develop a small facility for children with physical and learning disabilities at Marsabit. The costs associated with supporting these children are very high and all contributions are welcome.

Sponsoring a teenager through secondary school education is from £20/€29/$40 per month. Other young people are being funded to secondary schools. In Kenya in most cases this means boarding.

Download a Child Sponsorship Form plus a monthly Standing Order Form (GBP), Standing Order Form (EUR) or Standing Order Form (KES) from here. If you are a UK taxpayer you may consider completing a Gift Aid Declaration Form. If you are in USA, please download and complete the Child Sponsorship Form, scan (or photograph) and email to Kindfund, then from ‘How to Help’ set up a regular payment through Paypal.

We will send you details of your sponsored child, a photograph and a short project report to help establish your relationship.

We will then help you keep in touch through bi-annual reports about your sponsored child and the Kindfund project through which you are supporting them.

Regular Giving without Sponsorship

As an alternative to Child Sponsorship, you may wish to support us by simply giving regularly to Kindfund.

Regular Giving is about a long-term commitment to ensure a regular flow of finance to meet the running costs of Kindfund homes, allowing us to commit to supporting babies and young children who may expect to be living in the Kindfund family for the next 18 years.

Please use our Standing Order Form (GBP), Standing Order Form (EUR) or Standing Order Form (KES) if you would like to help us in this way. A Gift Aid Declaration Form may also be completed, if you are a UK taxpayer. If you are in USA, please go to ‘How to Help’ and set up a regular payment through Paypal.

As of 2018 Kindfund supports:

  • 250 children in a total of five nursery schools
  • 90 children at two small primary schools
  • 125 children in three Kindfund homes
  • 25 children in secondary education
  • 20 blind/partially sighted children to Isiolo School for the Visually Impaired
  • 5 children from remote villages to Isiolo School for the Hearing Impaired
  • 75 children on our daily meal programme

100% of donations and sponsorship contributions go directly to our projects in Kenya (excluding fees where applicable). All UK/Ireland administration is provided by volunteers who meet all overhead costs themselves, or are supported locally by others. All travel expenses—including to Kenya—are covered by each individual who is travelling. Visitors to Kindfund projects must cover their own costs whilst in Kenya.

Thank you for showing the love of God and for making a difference.

Kindfund was established as a charity in 2004 to further the gospel of Jesus Christ and to help relieve poverty amongst some of the poorest tribes in northern Kenya, working with the pastoralist Turkana, Samburu and Rendille.

We currently use 5 tonnes of food and supplies per month, providing for 125 children in 4 homes and 250 children in nursery and primary education.

We have dug 7 wells and fitted 7 handpumps, bringing safe water to remote villages.

100% of gifts go to Kenya.
