GM Foundation enables poor children and young adults from Kenya to pursue and attain academic excellence.


 

 

GM Foundation is a Swiss-registered not-for-profit association founded by a Geneva-based team.  Through a network of individual and corporate sponsors, GM Foundation provides direct financial and mentoring support to these children. With their parents too poor to afford $500 school fees per year, such children would otherwise drop out of high school and continue to live in abject poverty.

High school education opens doors to university opportunities and later, a life of literacy and economic independence. Funds donated through GM Foundation go directly to the academic institutions to settle school fees for the selected kids. Individuals and corporate sponsors get a one-to-one relationship with the sponsored child and can establish a mentoring relationship in addition to financial support.

All GM Foundation efforts are voluntary and incur no administrative cost.

 

“Having only managed to finish school myself through financial assistance from complete strangers, I know that our contributions make a huge difference in not only the children’s lives but the local community as well. Unfortunately there is no free secondary education in Kenya and lot of talented students end up not going to school due to lack of fees.” Gakundi Anderson

“The visit went beyond experiencing the beauty of Africa. I am overjoyed to see how a small act of kindness from me can so easily transform a life and a community. Through GM Foundation, I am doing my bit to make the world a better place.” Baptiste Pommiers


Operating since

GM Foundation has been operating since 2008 and is currently supporting 50 students to attain secondary school education. In 2012, the first 3 students graduated and got the opportunity to continue their studies at the university or technical schools in the country.

The Foundation was started informally by Gakundi Anderson, himself a beneficiary of a similar sponsorship, supporting a few kids to school. Later on it expanded to friends and colleagues as more people have embraced the dream, leading to a formally registered non-profit association.
