A Red Rubber Ball Foundation scholarship changes lives

 “You make me a star, and I promise to shine bright”

A scholarship is a passport to the future

For children who can’t afford to go to school:-

  • their school fees are paid so they complete four years at secondary school
  • they attend our workshops to develop the ‘anything is possible’ mindset
  • and beyond school, they get help to apply to university & college, including student loans
  • have access to interest free RRBF further education loans
  • and get mentoring to further education and employment.

It all starts with a scholarship. Read their stories…

Our sponsors have given 237 bright young people the chance to complete their education and reach their full potential.

The only school in Kenya with its own cycling club, provides an opportunity for children in Kibera to have fun, learn skills and build confidence.

Our students are matched with business leaders who become their mentor and help them pursue their ambitions.

Villagers learn farming skills and are given plants and seeds to improve their own crops, and obtain clean, fresh water from our bore hole.
