Because school is not free, COME UNITY’s Child Sponsorship Program in Ethiopia begins in pre-kindergarten. Many families cannot afford the fees to send even their youngest children to school.
COME UNITY’s Child Sponsorship Program is committed to providing equal opportunity in education. COME UNITY gives girls in Kenya the opportunity to stay in school.
In 2016 COME UNITY launched a University Scholarship Program that provides young women graduating from the secondary school sponsorship program the opportunity to compete for a university scholarship and pursue a meaningful career and a higher quality of life.
- School Tuition and Registration Fees
- Books and School Supplies

Our Sponsored Children
"Being able to report to school and continuously focus on my studies without being sent home to collect fees is like a dream to me. Improving my academic grades and self-confidence is something that I will forever thank COME UNITY for."
Mercy Cheruto Lokorwa, Child Sponsorship
"[COME UNITY] has helped the community to understand that girls were not born to be a bride price but also need education and not [to be] married off at a young age. They need also to be taken good care [of] and given their right to study."
Loyce Piloyia Jeremiah, University Scholarship, Kenya
"when I was not sponsored [by] COME UNITY I had school fees problems whereby I could be sent home due to lack of school fees but as for now I can comfortably stay at school and study without problems. I really thank COME UNITY together with all the donors for helping me pay for my school fees. I really promise that I won’t let u down. I will work hard to give back to the society and also to help other children like me. "
Laura Nampayion, University Scholarship, Kenya
"I come from the Pokot tribe where girls are seen as a bride price to earn the father an additional herd of cows. My family is now at peace because the fight between my parents especially my father to have me married off has become a thing of the past. My younger sisters [are] now encouraged to go to school."
Sharon Chebet, Child Sponsorship, Kenya
"I wish you and your family peace, health and love. Thank you!"
