Sponsor My Future is a Maltese non-profit organization which helps a community of children living in the township of Ruiru, Kenya. The programme supports the education and livelihood of children coming from underprivileged backgrounds, with the primary aim to give them an education which will allow them to lift themselves and their families out of poverty. Many families in this neighbourhood really struggle to send their children to school and often sacrifice meals and other essentials in order to be able to afford to send just one child to school.
Through the programme donors are directly able to provide a child with valuable opportunities for growth and development, enabling them to reach their full potential both at home and at school. Children are supported throughout their primary and secondary education and encouraged to take on further studies in order to pursue a successful career.
“What I know is that every child deserves quality care, attention, respect, love, understanding and opportunities for growth and development. Children are and will always be a blessing; even if they are disabled they are angels. I have worked in Kenya for 32 years with the poor and for the poor, and what I can say with my experience is that human life is precious, in whatever condition it is found” – Sr Celine Miranda, Daughters of the Sacred Heart
