Student Sponsorships

Student Sponsorships

Deep life impact is the heart of our mission at Uhuru Girls Academy. Our boarding school for girls is located 45 minutes outside of Nairobi in Tigoni, Kenya. Since 2009, our school has earned the designation of being the top private school in the region year after year. Our staff are passionate about providing both an excellent education and Christian discipleship! 


The 300+ students who have put on an Uhuru uniform in the past decade and gone on to embrace the freedom of the Gospel, impact their community by advocating for the least of these, and become the light of Jesus to the world. It all begins with their determination and our village’s (your) generosity! Step into our boarding school, meet our current students, and check out how to scholarship a student! 


Step into Uhuru Girls Academy

Uhuru girls are from impoverished families from all across the country who otherwise would not be able to afford school. The Lord has called us to pour into these young women because of a long, tragic history of women missing educational opportunities.

How can you help?

  1. Sponsor a student at $38 per month. 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. 
  2. Share about Uhuru Girls Academy. Encourage your friends and family to make a significant difference in a life by offering a student scholarship. Send them this link! 
  3. Come see us in Kenya. Consider coming to Uhuru Girls Academy on a Freedom Global service trip. Learn more about coming to Kenya, we can’t wait to meet you!

Hear the Story of Uhuru Alum Joan Kung'u

Click and drag the video screen to get a 360 degree view of Joan’s home, Uhuru Girls Academy, and to listen to her story!

“At Uhuru Academy, I found a family. I found friends who were willing to walk with me through the journey of my high school life, and teachers who are so friendly and kind… I not only got education, but I also got the chance to be discipled. It was not all easy, because I lost my dad during that season… but the discipleship team was a support system for me. And now I get to disciple current students and use my faith to mentor girls now.”
