A Brighter Future Starts with You

Do you believe in education for all? A quality education changes lives.

High school education in the developing world isn't free. We help students living in slums and remote communities access the education and support they need to escape poverty.

Every year The Kickstart Project team searches for individuals, families, work groups, schools or clubs who are willing to provide a life-changing sponsorship opportunity to bright and passionate students who are living in extreme poverty.

Our sponsorship provides a student with everything they need for a successful education.

  • 66% is spent on school and boarding fees
  • 15% is spent on personal requirements such as bedding, toothpaste, deodorant, toilet paper, washing powder, mattresses etc
  • 10% is spent on text books, uniforms and stationary
  • 4% is spent on international bank transfer/conversion fees, online payment gateway fees and tax deductibility fees
  • 5% is spent on National exam registration fees

We support our children from start to finish, and beyond!
