School fees

Since 2009, our Scholarship Program has awarded 160 scholarships to primary, secondary and post-secondary students.

Our Scholarship Program ensures that a family’s material situation does not limit a child’s right to education, a safe school environment and a future career. Our hope is to find sponsors for each of our scholarship students. However, we do not ask for purely a financial investment, instead we want sponsors to partner with our project and build lasting relationships with our students.

VSA Kenya helps children with funding to cover school fees and other school costs (for example textbooks, uniforms, and in some cases, boarding fees), for the school year. These children have been selected from the Victoria Sports Association based on need. In addition to financial support, students’ performance is monitored by VSA and invited to participate in tutoring and other activities during school breaks.

We are now assisting children from the communities in the village of Gem (Nyanza), after having helped more than 150 children in Nairobi between 2009 and 2019.

Why should you donate to this cause?

  • The right to education is one of the fundamental human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and an important tool in the fight against poverty. Victoria Sports Association (VSA) desires to see an end to the poverty cycle in Kenya. We feel the best way to make this dream a reality is to invest in the education of the next generation.
  • Every child deserves an education, but if families live on one or two dollars a day, school is an impossible luxury. Most teenagers in the slums are unable to continue past 8th grade, at which point tuition fees drastically rise, therefore dropping out before reaching high school. Students, often female, that cannot afford fees are forced to leave school and work, or in some cases marry at a young age. These children have no chance at securing a job and the cycle of poverty continues on to another generation.
  • Potential Long Term Impact: While education is one of the most powerful tools for reducing poverty and inequality, secondary education is out of reach for so many children. Scholarships will help children pursue life goals. For girls in particular, an extra year of education results in 20% more in earnings as an adult. Girls with secondary education are 6 times less likely to be married as children and an educated mother is more than twice as likely to send her children to school.
