New Routes Foundation supports orphaned young adults through university

WHAT WE DO  

Young adults with no parents and little help deserve the opportunity to access NEW ROUTES for their lives. We help our students find routes they were not previously travelling on - ones that will enable them to reach their full potential.

The biggest change in route we focus on is for our students to really learn and understand the Bible, and to apply it to their lives. Even if our students excel in their careers and find financial success, without a firm foundation, it will all ultimately be in vain.

'I have hidden your word in my heart.' (Psalm 119:11)

The second change in route we focus on, is significantly increased employment opportunities. The principal way we achieve this is through university sponsorship (among other things).

In the area of Kenya where we are based (Elgeyo-Marakwet), only 1.3% of ALL secondary school students go on to achieve a university degree. For orphaned students the opportunities are almost non-existent.

Our work focuses on discipling and sponsoring orphaned young adults to help them build successful futures for themselves.

“Orphaned and vulnerable young adults deserve the opportunity to access New Routes for their lives - ones that will enable them to reach their full potential.”
