About Us

We have been busy the last eight years availing opportunities to the underprivileged.

Our Story

The Kinyua Ngeera Education Foundation (KNEF) is a not-for-profit organization, duly registered in Kenya. It was founded in early 2009 in memory of the late Kinyua Ngeera who greatly valued education; he not only spoke of the importance of a good education but also led in action by voluntarily sponsoring several students’ education. He also sat on the Board of Governors of several schools where he influenced change in governance with the aim of making education more accessible to the underprivileged. KNEF was formed to carry on with this work.

The Foundation supports gifted students from financially underprivileged homes in the attainment of quality high school education by availing scholarships based on merit at select National and County level schools in Kenya. Through a deliberate leadership development and mentorship program, the foundation also helps its beneficiaries develop their personal and public leadership capacities so as to grow a generation of servant leaders who build and serve the communities around them.

Since inception, the foundation has sponsored nineteen students (past and present) in four Kenyan National schools and three County level schools.

We invite you to partner with us in this mission.

Haba na Haba

The Swahili people have a saying, “Haba na haba, hujaza kibaba”, which translated to English means that if we come together and contribute, little by little we will achieve our goal. KNEF believes in the power of community participation in achieving this goal of educating gifted students from underprivileged homes. Please consider making your contribution either as a one-time gift (such as a company’s CSR) or through regular contributions, of any amount, large or small through MPESA on the account below:

Areas of Engagement

KNEF focuses on the following areas:

Our aim is to sponsor as many new students as possible to high school every year subject to availability of funds. KNEF offers full academic scholarship, by merit, to gifted students from financially underprivileged homes at select National and County level schools in Kenya.

Student sponsorship is made possible by collaborative partnerships with individuals, groups of peoples, businesses and other organizations through the Adopt-A-Child and the Haba-na-Haba Initiatives. Further information on these is outlined below.

Partner With Us

The Young Leaders’ Club is specially designed to develop transformational leadership skills in young students. The primary target consumers of this program are the sponsorship beneficiaries of the Foundation though the club is also open to other students who may not be part of the foundation’s sponsorship program but may be interested in gaining the proffered skills and knowledge.

The program targets students in their second and third year of high school and takes them through ten well developed modules, including a brief period of apprenticeship and practical leadership, a time of community service and much more. Critical life skills like self-awareness and identity, socializing and networking, resource management, and team leadership form part of the curriculum which is taught by seasoned facilitators in a highly interactive format.

Active mentorships forms an important part of the program and is geared towards guiding the students to develop a command in their individual character and leadership roles.
