As a child who needed to work to support his family while attending school, Sam’s grades began to drop. His sister learned about a local church who was offering tutoring and encouraged him to attend.
There, Sam met Geoff and Linda Simpson. Geoff and Linda have developed a ministry called Nuru Yake, which means “His Light.” Nuru Yake offers academic tutoring, Bible studies, and high school sponsorships for children and teens in Rongai.
Geoff and Linda believe in giving generously to people in need, but one of the unique aspects of their organization is that they provide an opportunity for those who are receiving help to pay it forward and pour into the lives of the next generation.
Sam got connected with a sponsor who paid for his school fees so he could attend high school. In Rongai, it costs about $50/mo or $600 a year to attend high school.
