About Ahadi Zetu Foundation

Our Vision
Changing Lives One Mind at a Time…Every Child under the Sun.
General Information
Ahadi Zetu is recognized federally as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
How we do it
Ahadi Zetu Foundation provides high school tuition scholarships to destitute children (orphaned and/or very poor) in the Kiangai region of Central Kenya. The children sponsored through Ahadi Zetu would otherwise have no opportunity to pursue a high school diploma. High school students in Kenya pay for everything, from tuition, to books, school uniforms, and examinations.
The children sponsored by Ahadi Zetu used to go out to find money to defray some of these costs and most had despaired. This left the children vulnerable to exploitation; the situation is especially dire for girls who are denied a chance for education all together.
The foundation currently works closely with community members, leaders, administrators, teachers, and members of the community to identify destitute children in the area. Our team then interviews the children and their families (if available), find a sponsor, and then coordinate admission to Kiangai Secondary School. The students’ attendance, behavior, grades, and general welfare are closely monitored by a volunteer director of community affairs who lives and works in the community. How we are funded
How we are funded

100% of every dollar donated to Ahadi Zetu goes towards tuition payments for our students. Ahadi Zetu Foundation doesn’t take any cuts and is fully operated by volunteers. The cost of tuition for the 2014 school year was $200 and it will probably remain the same in 2015. This covers tuition and includes lunch for 5 days a week for the whole school year; this for some of the children is their only meal for the day. Currently, an individual sponsor is matched with a single child, but there are still many needy students that we have not been able to sponsor. Going forward, we would like to raise funds into a pool from which we can draw.
Our plan is to continue to increase the number of needy students supported each year in Kiangai, eventually reach out to other areas of Kenya, and Africa as a whole. We are incredibly thankful for the generous support that has enabled us to do the work that we have done so far.
