New TWS record set in 2017!

Thanks to our amazing sponsors 24 new teenagers will be sponsored by TWS this school year! Since we have 32 continuing students it sets a TWS record of a whopping (drumroll please) 56 sponsored high school students in 2017!

That’s really something to feel fabulous about. And I haven’t even mentioned the vocational school students yet…

Thank you TWS Kenya!

A big thank-you to TWS Kenya, to Florence and Wayua, the school principals, parents, and community members who helped with our application process this month. The Ottawa-Nairobi-Isyukoni-Kikule-Nairobi-Ottawa information exchange is truly remarkable given the distance, remoteness, and infrastructure challenges. We couldn’t do it at our end, if our Kenyan friends and colleagues weren’t making it happen at their end. :-) Nashukuru rafikis!

Student applications are being reviewed!

The TWS Canada crew is going through the agonizing, humbling, process of reviewing student applications this week.

How I wish we could sponsor every single one of them and help them in their quest to rise out of poverty. And how grateful I am that we can sponsor as many as we do!

2016 sponsorship program kick-off!

We just kicked off the start of our 2016 sponsorship program!

Current sponsors we will be in touch soon! New sponsors are always welcome!

Just $190 gets a boy or girl to high school for the year.

And $475 gets a boy or girl to a technical training institute where they learn trade skills such as motor vehicle mechanics, garment making, computer applications (and we provide them with sheets, a blanket, cup/bowl/spoon, that they need at boarding school plus paper and notebooks).

You will receive a tax donation for the entire sponsorship amount.

We are 100% volunteer-run and our expense are very very low (just bank fees and postage) so your donation actually gets where you want it to go!

If you want to learn more about our sponsorship program please send an email to
