Student Sponsorships

The 120 Campaign

Deep life impact- It’s the strength of our all girls boarding school in Kenya. With your help, over the next year we will serve more girls than ever before from impoverished backgrounds by providing an education and discipleship.

Lives Impacted: 

Uhuru Academy was launched in 2013.  It has given a life changing education to 120 students. Over 60% of these youth are bright girls from impoverished backgrounds. They would not be able to go to secondary school because each family’s  income averages $0.68 per day. (The cost of  a coca-cola in Kenya is 50 cents.) With your help, Freedom Global gives education scholarships to  amazing young women with great potential but little opportunity.


Our Goal: 

Currently Uhuru Academy has 66 students at the boarding school. The facilities have capacity to hold 120 girls. Join us to add  54 students to bring Uhuru Academy to maximum capacity.



How can you help? 

  1. Sponsor a student at $38 per month.
  2. Encourage your friends and family to make a significant difference in a life by offering a student scholarship.
  3. Consider coming to Uhuru Academy on a Freedom Global service trip.


Donate $38/month toward a student’s scholarship!

Consider giving $38 per month to sponsor a student. This sum, less than taking your family to a movie, will join with others giving a partial year’s scholarship to enable a student’s academic journey in Uhuru Academy. Your $38 per month provides.  a home to a student,  510 meals, a first class secondary education, and  Christian discipleship for 170 days. It also allows Freedom Global to give healthy raises to our teachers, provides teaching equipment ( books, desks, testing materials, etc) to better serve each scholarship student. If you are able to give more, a full student scholarship is $175 per month ($2,100 annually), covering a student’s expenses for a full year.
