Marianne (13) and Tesha (14) live in Taveta a small town in Kenya. Marianne is one of three children in a single mother household. Tesha also has two siblings. Both would love to go to secondary school, but their parents are not able to rise the school fees.
In Kenya only the first four years of school are free of charge. Secondary school is unfortunately fee based and these are comparably high. One year of the four-year education cost roughly 664€. Considering that the average income (per year) in Kenya is around 1.200 USD, the school fees are hardly affordable.
Help Marianne and Tesha with your donation to go to school and their next step for help for self-help. Every single cent will flow directly in the project - their school fees. For four years we try to raise 2.656 € per child to ensure their education. Once Marianne is grown up she would love to found a orphanage, Tesha would love to become a aircraft engineer.
Our registered association Jump Start e.V. (www.jumpstart-ev.de) supports children in Kenya and Tanzania with school sponsorship. We are knowing all of our fosterlings personally and are in constant contact to them. Since 2012 we have supported more than 19 pupils and students and we will continue...!
