Bicycle ride to raise fund for our education Bursary fund

The Rotary Club of Malindi, Kenya runs an education bursary fund for children going for secondary school education and that are from poor families or orphans.

At the moment our club sponsors 30 students for their education of 4 years. Each student education for 4 years cost to the club 1,500 euros. The club manages to pay through well wishers and sponsors. Every year the need rises and at the moment we have over 100 applications waiting. We have limited funds for the children already in sponsorship.

Rotary Club of Malindi kindly request you to support this worthy cause and help a needy child. Your kind donation can be yearly or for a full course of 4 years.

Our goal is to raise up 5,000,000 Kenyan Shillings (50,000 euros)

Let's us join hands and make dreams real by saving and educating a less fortunate child.
