You can open the door for a needy child, giving the opportunity to have dignity, hope and a future.
“He raises up the poor from the dust; He lifts the needy from the ash heap to make them sit with princes and inherit a seat of honor” 1 Sam 2:8
The Ian Memorial Sponsorship Fund seeks to assist the children of Tuwan to reach their potential.
The graduates of Graceway Victory Academy are well received by the surrounding Primary Schools and some parents are willing and able to send them. However, Primary School in Kenya, while being presented as free, has many hidden costs and becomes a burden on the family. The poorest and most neglected children fall through the cracks. These children often end up on the street, begging and sniffing glue. The girls are particularly vulnerable and may turn to prostitution or early marriage in order to find security.
Through sponsorship we can close this gap. The cost is $365 per year with a slight increase as the child progresses. This ensures a high quality Christian education at a private school, currently Seed of Hope Academy. Your child is guaranteed food, medical care, safe transport, school supplies, uniform and shoes. In addition to the care of the child, the parents are encouraged to participate in one of the Africa Connect-sponsored empowerment programs, to be trained in a culturally appropriate business or skill.
Each Sponsor can look forward to receiving a letter from their child, a detailed yearly update on their welfare, and the opportunity to write to the child as often as they desire.

About Ian Memorial Scholarship Fund
The IMS fund was established in 2013 to honor Ian Kipkoech, a bright and loving student who died in a tragic accident in March of that year. Ian was a student in Graceway Victory Academy, who upon graduating received a sponsorship that enabled him to continue his primary education. Ian was flourishing academically, physically and spiritually at the time of his passing; it is our hope that many more beautiful children like Ian will be given this opportunity to flourish through this Memorial fund.
