What is the annual cost per student?

SOSS donor’s financial responsibility to sponsor one student for one year is $1200. These funds go to the students:

  • Tuition
  • Safe, secure shelter and regular meals
  • School uniforms
  • Personal care and school supplies
  • Transportation
  • Basic health care

Any excess donation over $1200 goes to the General Fund for room, board and medical expenses while the students are not in school and are living at the Home Base. All schools in Kenya are closed in April, August, and December and each student’s annual expenses while at the Home Base averages around $500.

Donations to buy books, games and sporting equipment are always appreciated by the students.
