The Childhope Foundation was inspired by our shared dream and conviction that the destiny of young people left behind by our devoted members after their demise, is not tied to their current circumstances of lacking. We believe these children should be able to continue with their studies through Secondary and University level, just like they would have done had their parents been alive.
The Childhope Scholarship Fondation Program was initiated in 2011 with an initial 24 students and the number has since grown to 95 students by the end of September, 2017. The students have mostly maintained exemplary academic performance while also demonstratinug leadership capability through the internship program offered at Mwalimu National.
We can attest to the fact that some of these students have proved to be successful out of the performance seen in the few years we have sponsored them. The program has benefitted several high school scholars out of whom a good number have finished their secondary school studies and have already enrolled in universities around the country. The program’s objective is to give academically talented children from vulnerable backgrounds an equal opportunity to access secondary school and university education.
Beneficiaries of the Childhope Foundation program shall be bright and deserving orphaned children whose parent(s) were active members of the Society prior to their demise. The students must have performed well in KCPE examinations and obtained at least 350 marks.
Opportunities for beneficiaries shall be awarded competitively with each of the Society’s forty (40) Branches countrywide being given an equal opportunity to forward two (2) students in any given year. However, in certain circumstances where some branches fail to submit needy orphaned cases from their regions, the Foundation is mandated to consider awarding additional slots to students who are considered extremely needy but come from branches which have already exceeded their maximum allocation of two students.
The program is spearheaded by the Education and Business Development Committee (EBD) members under the stewardship of the Society’s National Vice Chairman as the Foundation’s Chairperson. Other leaders include four other directors who are also drawn from the Education and Business Development Committee.
The current leadership of the Foundation is as follows:
