Shelter of Hope – Education (Kenya & Nairobi)

After a year-long pause on education in Kenya in 2020, Shelter of Hope Academy’s doors have opened at the beginning of January 2021 to their students!  Students have returned with much excitement to learn but they are also exhausted by the multitude of challenges that they have faced; lack of income, food, and commodities, high risk of infection, a rise of inflation, and increased stressors within family dynamics. Although families and students are very eager to go back to school, it becomes difficult to accommodate the capacity of students while adhering to the Kenya COVID-19 regulations with little to no funding.

If you would like to help support Shelter of Hope Academy, there is an opportunity to sponsor  a student in 2021! This student sponsorship program will assist a child with education fees, medical care, nutrition and COVID requirements for 50$ CAD/Month. Once you are paired with a child, we will be sure to share information on the child you are providing for!

Christine’s Story



Christine is a level one student at Shelter of Hope Academy who has been without her school friends and teachers since mid-March 2020. Unfortunately, being one of the orphans housed by the school, the Kenyan Government ordered an evacuation and she was forced to reside with community guardians. Although Shelter of Hope distributed the emergency food supplies sponsored by MVC during the summer, many families, including Christine’s housing, had little to afford the high costs of water and nutrition regularly.
