How You Can Help


"Educate a girl to improve the lives of a community." (Maasai phrase pictured above)  The Olkiramatian Reto Community Based Organization (CBO) would love your support for their bursary program launched in May of 2010.  They hope to continue to promote education and send girls to school throughout their schooling years.  The program is estimated to cost 22,000 Ksh (about $300) per year to send one child to boarding school.  This covers tuition and all of their initial boarding needs.


50,000 Ksh (about $670) will buy a set of Kenyan curriculum textbooks for a school in Olkiramatian or Shompole.  All donation amounts are welcome. 


The Olkiramatian Reto CBO now sells three different solar light products throughout their communities.  Help provide solar light to schools (and support the local women’s group) by donating money to purchase these lights.  The Kiran lantern and the Solata cost 1300 Ksh (about $17) and the Nova – which also charges your cell phone – costs 4000 Ksh (about $53).  Find out more about these products on the company website at dlightdesign.com.

All donations can be made through our US partners below.
