Invest in a child's education

Week 1 of the Beneficiary Monitoring and Support Visit (BMSV) ends today and Week 2 begins on Monday. HBEF uses these visits to monitor the students progress and to motivate them to do their best. It is quite a humbling experience impacting these young minds. A quote from 1 of our motivational speakers in Kiambu county yesterday: 'If you want to invest for a year, plant rice; if you want to invest for 3 years, plant a tree; if you want to invest for 100 years, invest in a child's education!'

Thank you to all our sponsors!

A sponsor is more than a financial sponsor – most of our sponsors give much more than their money to educate their beneficiaries’ lives, they give their time, their families and share their lives with our beneficiaries. They take the time to write to the children and even send them letters. As HBEF we are truly grateful to all our sponsors and as we prepare to meet the students from the 15th – 26th August we are reminded of the reason we do what we do at HBEF – promoting education as a human right. Thank you to all our past and present sponsors!

Bonface Karuru

Hi Hildeback Family,
My name is Bonface Karuru, a former beneficiary from year 2008- 2011 back when i was in Kiambu High School where managed to score an A- in KCSE. I recently graduated from Kenyatta university with a First Class Honors Degree in Economics and Finance. I want to take this opportunity to thank Hildeback Education Fund for your financial aid that I received through my high school studies. It went a really long way in making me reach to a whole new level through my campus life and also in shaping the man that i am today through the motivational retreats that you organized for us during my time as a beneficiary. This email is primarily meant to recognize the role that you have played in shaping my life...and also to share the good news with you.

I am indeed greatful to Hildeback for the part that you have played in my life. THANKYOU VERY MUCH HILDEBACK FAMILY
A small act gone a long way........................

Tyson Machimbo Lumbuku (2012-2015)

I would like to take the opportunity to inform you that I am very grateful for your great support for sponsoring me in my high school education for the four years in St. Peter's Mumias Boys High School.
Due to your great support, I was able to learn comfortably and eventually scored a mean grade of B+. This has enabled me to qualify to do Bachelor of Education in Kenyatta University.
Once again I would like to say that you have made a great impact in my life and how I pray that the Almighty God open the financial doors for you so that you can continue with the same spirit.
Lastly I thank the whole Hilde Back Back fraternity together with my former sponsor Sir James Hays. May God bless you all.
