Why Sponsor a Child
with Better Me?
Fulfilling a Dream
Every child is unique and deserves the chance to dream, to achieve incredible things and to look forward to a wonderful future. By becoming a sponsor you’re helping break the cycle of poverty for your sponsored child, it’s family and the surrounding community.
Sponsoring a child with Better Me is an incredible experience. You are able to exchange letters and photos with your sponsored child and you are welcome to visit us in Kenya to see how much your support is helping transform their lives, the lives of those around them and ultimately; your own life.

Child's and Your Details
Benefitting the whole Korando Children Family
When you sponsor a child with Better Me, you’re not just helping one child – you’re making improvements that benefit everyone at the Korando Educational Centre, their families and beyond. Projects include building a school and dormitories, training teachers and providing agricultural and other vocational trainings.
How Sponsorship supports our Children
“Now I am able to read and write and I love going to school. I owe what I am today to Korando and I am so grateful.
“I dream of becoming a famous doctor so that I can take care of not only my brothers and sisters, but also all the people who need health care in my country, which was struck so hard by the HIV epidemic.”

A Caring Leader
Mama Dolfine builds a close relationship with every child under Korando’s care, and supports their families to provide the security, love and stability that each child needs. As a child-care professional, she guides their development, and runs the school like a big family. She recognizes and respects each child’s family background and cultural roots.
Brothers and Sisters
Korando Children Family
All the students of the Korando Educational Centre experience a family-like school culture, while growing up and learning side by side. We nurture the feeling of unity by organizing extra-curricular activities and summer camps for all children. For the children the school becomes a second family.
Korando Educational Centre
During school time, the center becomes our “family’s” home, with its own unique feeling, rhythm and routine. Under its roof, children enjoy a real sense of unity, while growing and learning together, sharing responsibilities and all the joys and sorrows of daily life.

Connecting With Your Sponsored Child
The children at Korando are happy to hear from their sponsors. Letters and pictures are well-received and will happily be answered.
Because all the children are treated equally, we only encourage to give presents that can be shared between all children. For this we have created a Gift Catalog to choose from. You can give presents at anytime, for holidays or just because you are thinking of them.

You are very welcome to visit our family in Kenya either as a volunteer or as a short-term visitor.
