Child Sponsorship

Project Idea: The church in its quest to be relevant, just, caring and responsive to the needs of the people and more so children, is currently implementing various programs across the country. Currently there are five programs with aspect of child sponsorship. These are 

  • Objective: The main objective is to work with and support vulnerable children (children with disability, Orphans, abandoned children, children living on the streets, children from dysfunctional homes, children running away from forced marriages and Female genital cut) so as to receive care as well as basic education.


  • Working with communities to create favorable environment for children to live in
  • Rehabilitating children out of the streets and reintegrating them back with their families and or guardians
  • Assisting these children to be in school by Paying their school fees and or levies as well as meeting other necessities for them to learn.
  • Sensitize the community on the needs of children as well as on children rights

Target group: Vulnerable children (children with disability, Orphans, abandoned children, children living on the streets, children from dysfunctional homes, children running away from forced marriages and Female genital cut as well as children living in poverty)

  • Target Area: The whole country

History: The church has been in existence since the year 1949 and so has been its involvement in children issues. Different projects were started at different times targeting different needs of these communities and children.

Our collective responsibility

  • Poverty in Kenya is still high with over 55 percent of the population living on less than a dollar a day. Diseases such as HIV and Aids have resulted in the increased no of orphans and vulnerable children.
  • These children need education since education is the key to a brighter future. You can therefore help support these children by supporting their education through the FGCK child sponsorship program. We assure you of updated report and progress of the child on quarterly basis. This is our collective responsibility


  • The church has supported hundreds of children in different ways through the sponsorship program over the years. Some of these children were rescued from forced marriages and taken to school and today they are leading independent lives with families of their own choice.
  • Bernard Chege: Living in one of the harshest slums in Nairobi (Soweto in Kayole) and coming from a dysfunctional family, life became unbearable for Bernard. Running away from home to the streets thinking that this would be better than the abusive home environment, to him, this was a rude shock. Through the street children project, Bernard and others were rehabilitated and rescued from the streets and later enrolled in a private boarding school through the child sponsorship program. Bernard went ahead and score 402 out of possible 500 in the KCPE exams. He joined a provincial school and later passed his KCSE exams. Today, Bernard is pursuing college education.
  • Cynthia is a total orphan who never had the opportunity to know her parents as she was orphaned as an infant. She was adopted by her aunt who raised her as her own child. But her aunt having no income and also with a large family of her own, Cynthia faced dropping out of school in form two as her aunt could no longer keep her in school. Through the sponsorship program, Cynthia was taken into the programme in the year 2010 and is currently sitting her end of secondary examinations (October – November 2012), thanks to the sponsorship program.
