Welcome to Elimu.ca
We began in 2005 by taking two boys to Kindergarten. Today we are running four educational projects in Kenya. Our ultimate goal is to form the children in our programs into confident, self-reliant individuals with hopeful futures.
Stay in School” Sponsorship Project
Our “Stay in School” project identifies children at risk of dropping out of school due to poverty, illness or other crisis and provides what they need to keep them in school. They continue to live with their current parent or guardian. Click here to read more.

The building was paid for through fundraising in Canada, the USA and England and built in partnership with the Sabaki Village community in Kenya. Click here to read more.
