Any donation is much appreciated, no matter what amount.
Our costs are simple.  It's about $300 for a full year of tuition at the Kimana Naramatisho Academy.  This ensures
room and board as well as education for our children.  Uniforms and books are approximately $100.
If you have an interest in sponsoring a child the monthly cost is $34.  Just let us know which child and if
you would like a phone call from Leonard to answer any questions. We can arrange for correspondence
to and from the child as well. However, sponsorship is not a requirement.  Any single or monthly donation will be put
towards a scholarship for one of these bright, deserving children.  100% of your donation goes to their education!

school themselves. His older sibling does not attend
school either.

scholarship that will provide him with a very good education his
parents are overjoyed and hope that Samuel will achieve great
things too.

Trustworthy, honest, bright, leader

Rose was a class prefect (Leader) in her government run school.
ACF has chosen Rose to go to our private Academy school to
further her education on the recommendation of the  Headmaster
of her previous government school.

teachers for her responsible character and leadership skills, but
they don't want her to miss out on this opportunity.
MILTON SAITABAU
16 years old
Class 9
Determined, sociable, physical

Milton has been in our program for 3 years and is our first
student to be accepted into the Kenya National High
School program. This is quite an honor - as students must
receive extremely high test scores to be admitted.
When he first came to us, Milton was in danger of having to
drop completely out of school because his parents could no
longer raise the funds.  This caused great anxiety for his
family and they were so pleased that Amboseli Children's
Fund could help.
Milton excels in mathematics and is newly determined to do
well in the more rigorous environment of the National  school.
He has told us that he dreams of becoming a member of
Parliament so that he can better represent the Maasai
people.

Some of the children shown below have received initial sponsorship, but we need more funds to keep
them in school each year.  Please let us know if you are interested in being a sponsor  -  even a one time
donation is greatly valued.  We also have many more children anxiously awaiting our assistance and
eager to attend the Academy. Your contribution will completely change their life!

NELLY LASOI
14 years old
Class 7
Friendly, outgoing, studious

Nelly is the eldest child in her family. Her mother was
unable to go to school. Her father went as far as 5th grade.
Nellie loves getting a clean, new uniform each year.  
It has been difficult for her to keep her clothes from
getting torn and dirty. At the small manyatta (village) where her
family is from there is no electricity for clothes washers, no
clotheslines to hang up the clothes. All the washing is done by
hand from the meager water supplies available.
To keep the clothing off the ground it is spread out over large
bushes to dry. Often, the bushes are trampled by the cows and
goats. Sometimes they nibble on the clothes and tear them.
Nelly’s confidence was given a great boost with her new uniform
and school environment. She has excelled in our program and
has consistently high test scores. In 2016 she will test for the
National High School and we have high hopes that she will be
admitted.

opportunity for a quality education, so that she can
achieve the dreams she has for her life.

means to provide an academy education.
CHARITY SEEYIAN                  
13 years old
Class 5
Outgoing, hardworking, warmhearted

Charity is very close to her mother. Her family has a semi nomadic
life that has made it very difficult for her to have a continuous
education because they are always moving. She has missed one
whole year of school because of this.
She and her mother are so pleased that she now boards  at
our Academy school which provides the stability and continuity
she needs to be successful and keep up with her age group.
ISAACK SABORE                          
12 years old
Class 5
Polite, gentle, easygoing, clever

Prior to the great drought of 2009 Isaack’s family was well off, with many cattle to
provide funds for Isaack’s schooling. However, the drought was so prolonged and
devastating that Isaack’s parents lost all their cattle leaving them with no source
of income.
They tried hard to keep him in school but like many Maasai families affected by
the drought they often fell behind in their payments.
Isaack and his family are so grateful for the ACF scholarship and the opportunity
to learn at a level that will make it easier for him to eventually pass his Secondary
school entrance exam and go further with his education.
