Rudisha Foundation Sponsorship Children

In January 2013, Moses Msuya and Amanda Strowbridge-Msuya made a commitment to give back to a child who was less fortunate than themselves and sponsor school fees until she finished secondary school.  With the help of Martha Msuya they were able to send a child to school for her first time. A child that without donation or sponsorship, would not be able to attend school.

When Moses, Martha and Amanda shared their gesture of sponsorship with their family and friends they were most grateful to learn, they too were willing to give back to children who seek an education, but do not have the opportunity. With continued support from sponsorship and donations from family and friends, Moses, Martha and Amanda have created the “Rudisha Foundation” which provides funds for 16 children to have the opportunity to attend school in and around Moshi, Tanzania.

The schools are very strict with attendance, especially when children are being sponsored. Rudisha Foundation invites you to follow along and watch the success of these 16 children. We encourage you to send letters which we will deliver to your sponsor child. 

For the 2017 school year, many of the children had out grown their old uniforms and their shoes were finished! As the schools are very strict that each attending student must have fully intact and proper uniforms, the Rudisha Foundation covered the costs for TWO new uniforms and shoes for each child. It is our hope that we can continue to provide this same standard for each child every year. All children enrolled in the Rudisha Foundation are provided with school uniforms, backpacks, pencils and required notebooks, these items are covered by the donation fund and sponsorship.

Moses, Martha and Amanda are ever grateful for new sponsors or donations that will help the Rudisha Foundation continue to make a difference in the lives of these 16 children. A small amount, goes a long way! With continued support we are happy to be able to help you make a difference. All donations and sponsorship funds go directly to the above mentioned school costs. No administrative fees are deducted from your donations. 

DSC 0214(2)School fees for each child vary depending on; the school they attend (private or government), the grade each student attends and how many supplies they may need for the full year. Private schools offer a better education, however, they can be up to triple the price of local government schools. We are hopeful that one day we may have of the children in private schools.

What started out as a wish to help a child in need turned into MUCH more!

 

 


Each year the following people extend their love for those less fortunte than themselves. Rudisha Foundation is extremely thankful for this kind gesture.

THANK YOU to ALL who have also sponsored the children for 2014 and 2013 school fees.

There are two ways to help...

How to help Rudisha Foundation sponsorship1. Sponsor a particular child for a full school year or commit to a period of a few years should your heart desire.

2. Make a donation to the fund as a whole, to ensure that all of the children have the chance to continue their education in the years to come and have the proper uniform to attend school.

The Rudisha Foundation Sponsorship program covers the cost of tuition and books for each child in the program.

School fees for each child vary depending on their grade and the school they attend. Private schools offer a better education however they can be up to triple the price of local government schools. We would be most grateful to have all of the children in private schools. At this point having them in any school is better than being on the streets.

The kids and parent or guardian each, had a great safari for the first time in their own country! - Arusha National Park, Tanzania.  All the children were doing so well at school so Amanda decided to raise the money and take them on a proper safari.  What a success!
