Call for 2024 Sponsorship


 "After the KCPE results were announced, the schools were also announced where I found out that I had earned an opportunity at a National school called Lugulu Girls. I never knew how I was going to join this school due to the financial situation at home but I thank God for sending you to my rescue" Hellen Mandosha Form 2

Education is a gift that lasts over one’s lifetime and gives one the opportunity to transform their lives and those of their families and communities. This is an appeal for you to consider sponsoring a bright needy child through a 4 year secondary school scholarship so we may have many more testimonials to give as below.

How it Works

HBEF supports exceptionally bright students who complete primary school education but are unable to join secondary school due to financial constraints, through the award of education scholarships. There are 2 payment plans:

  • Full sponsorship is whereby a sponsor covers the full monetary support of $1000 per year or $85 per month for four years or a one off payment of $4000. This means 1 child is paired with 1 sponsor.
  • Co-sponsorship is a sponsorship program we introduced in 2017 to enable sponsors who are not able to raise the current full sponsorship fee to still be a part of us. Co-sponsorship allows 2 sponsors to sponsor 1 child. The cost will be $500 per year or $45 per month for four years or a one off payment of $2000. The beneficiary will write to both sponsors and we will share this respectively.
  • Sponsor expresses an intention to sponsor a child/children through their 4 years secondary school education by filling the HBEF Sponsor Commitment Form.
  • Sponsor initiates donations for the sponsorship through our secure donate page or by sending a check to

Creative Visions Foundation
Attn: Grace Breuer,
18820 Pacific Coast Highway,
Suite 201, Malibu, CA 90265
NB: Kindly make the check payable to Creative Visions Foundations (and input HBEF in the memo section). Creative Vision Foundation is HBEF fiscal partners in the USA

  • The Sponsor is informed of their sponsored child/children in early February of the next year. This is after the completion of the Recruitment and Selection Process of the new beneficiaries which is done in January of every year.
  • The Sponsor is kept updated on the progress of their sponsored child/children through updates sent out 3 times a year after HBEF undertakes its Beneficiary Monitoring and Support Visits with the children during the school holidays in April, August and December. Updates include exchange of letters, Performance Report Forms and Photos.

I passed the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education and was admitted to pursue a course in Medical Laboratory Science and Technology at the University of Nairobi which I am enjoying. I am also sure that with the education I am getting now, it will see me through more achievements in the future like opening up a laboratory that is standardized for specimen examination and research.

Psychosocial support conducted during the Beneficiary Monitoring and Support Visits is important and helpful as it helps the students achieve their set targets. For example action focus really enabled me to focus on the positive actions that ended up giving me the good grade I achieved.

I feel so much blessed by the scholarship opportunity. Some of my former classmates in primary school did not get a chance to attend secondary school as I did. I feel so confident and not worried at all that my parents will be unable to get money for school fees.

If HBEF did not give me a scholarship I would be repeating class 8 this year as I await my siblings to complete secondary school then I would be able to join a local secondary school where there are no much expenses. I appreciate the support and encouragement you have given me.
