Make a difference
Each year, Oliver & Learn sponsors students from 11 schools in the rural Kianjai area of Kenya. We help to pay for school fees, books and uniforms – all of the vital things that keep these secondary students in school. Many of these students are orphans. Without this support, they would have to drop out of school and work in subsistence jobs to survive. School fees are only £135 per year, but to many, this is simply unaffordable.
Help Winifred set up her business
We’ve helped students like Winifred set up a business on graduating, by providing them with the tools of their trade. This donation of a sewing machine or plumbing equipment can make a huge difference, whether it’s to young people just starting out in their working lives, or to their family.
Help the community improve their farming techniques
The Kianjai region is subject to regular droughts. This has a disasterous impact on the local community. To improve drought resiliency, a community teaching farm is being developed. The farm will teach techniques for selecting and planting drought resistant crops and encourage the community to develop greater yeilding crops.
