While visiting Kenya in 2017, our American sisters quickly fell in love with the children of Oasis and the Rainey Sewing Class. Oasis is a place where children are welcome and celebrated and that can be felt as soon as you arrive in their gates. NOW has offered fair wages for artisan work for many years, but even with those fair wages good schools are not within reach for many of the families of Oasis.
With the help of NOW sisters, their families, their friends, and churches NOW hopes to advance the lives of the children of Oasis. School scholarships are a great way to change a life, help a mom, and connect globally with our brothers & sisters. NOW Sponsorships are available for children 5 and up.
Sponsorship for each child is $50/month, $300/6 months, or $600/year. You can choose how you would like to be billed.
This money is used to pay towards tuition, uniform, shoes, educational fees, materials, meals, boarding (when needed), transportation and more! An automatic $30 birthday cake, ice cream, plates, and cutlery is built into each year's fees.
With a flat monthly fee, some children’s fees may not be fully covered. The parent/s will be responsible to cover the difference or pass the opportunity on to the next waiting child. If the cost of the child’s schooling is less than $50/month, the extra money is used to cover other children’s costs that are not covered by their sponsor. This is up to the Sponsorship Directors, Irene & Betty, in country to distribute accordingly.
Once you are paired with a child you will receive an information packet, updates from them or their parent/s periodically, the opportunity to write letters and send photos back to them, and the ability to send treats or gifts if a team trip is headed to Kenya.
Our goal is to have every Oasis school-age child in a facility that fosters healthy development, educational opportunity, and nourishment.
100% of your money goes to the child, their education, supplies, and currency exchange fees. This program is run by a volunteer staff of one. Make your money count: sponsor a child by yourself, with a family member, with a friend, or encourage your church to sponsor a child.
