The Bookshine Student Sponsorship Program enables youth in Nairobi to attend school and receive a good education.
Many students come from needy families, and some have lost parents due to Aids, other diseases and civil unrest. Sending a youth to school requires money to pay school fees, and buy school uniforms, shoes, exercise books, and hopefully some lunch – this is beyond the reach of many families.
£100 ($120) pays the school fees (including lunch and stationery) for one student for one term, and £300 ($360) covers the annual costs.

The school also has specific needs such as more books for the library and more lab equipment. Many classrooms are temporary and are wearing out, permanent structures are needed for the future.
