Hey! Our Names are Kibet & Kamama


Our mother has mental illness and we don't know who our father's are. As a result, we were forced to fend for ourselves until 2014 when we met VUNA family whom since then have been our guardian. They have enrolled us in a boarding school where we now get education, food and shelter.

Thank you all who are working with VUNA  & Friends of VUNA for your Love.



To support other children like us in Pokot at Turkana, you can write to pokotmissions@gmail.com for inquires.
You can also join the VUNA team for their annual mission trips to visit with the children you support.

You small contribution will go a long way to help another child in the communinity.
Where we come from there is usually alot inter-clan clashes. Because of this, we were unable to attend school in Jan- March 2017. As a result we were taken to take care of our relatives herds far away from home. Our hope to go back to school faded away but today we are happy to have found a new boarding school withhin our community. Here it i more safe so we can focus on our education

About Sponsorship
Why enroll
How to enroll
   ​​​​​
In the midst of an increasingly knowledge-based global economy, 30 million primary school-age children in Africa—one in every four—are out of school, along with 20 million adolescents (UIS, 2012). According to an article by Justin W. van fleet of Brookings Institute nearly 17 million children in Africa will never attend school.
Traditional obstacles such as FGM, the practice of early marriage for girls to obtain dowry, the practice of FGM, and the necessity for boys to herd their families’ cattle are affecting children in Pokot & Turkana.
Other barriers include the health of the community, sanitation and hygiene practices, and the financial barrier. Without access to education these communities, will remain trapped in extreme poverty, with a high under-five mortality rate, low health outcomes, and low life expectancies. A lack of education consigns  youth to a future of poverty, underemployment, and insecurity, and undermines the region’s ability to prosper economically.

 ​​​VUNA International recognizes the importance of Education. Through generous gifts from well-wishers, the organization seeks to raise funds to send the unprivileged children in the marginalized communities to school.  By educating children, together we can break the cycle of poverty and build communities that have hope for the future generation. 
The program sponsors children as per the wishes of the donor as long as it meets the child protection laws.
The program was first launched in 2013 during the first VUNA mission to Pokot.
