About Child Sponsorship Program

Our Child Sponsorship Program is at the very heart of what we stand for - transforming lives through education and mentorship!

Our Child Sponsorship Program, called 'Elimisha' (which means 'to educate' in Swahili), supports 100 children who live in the Kibera slums, Kenya. Opportunities for children growing up in the slums are often limited, particularly if they have lost one or both parents and there is insufficient money to pay for school fees.

The funds raised from this program are used to cover tuition fees, uniforms, books, medical check-ups and mentoring activities for our sponsored children.

Child sponsorship is $600 per year for primary school students, and $960 per year for high school students. Our sponsors also get the opportunity to connect to their sponsored child through letter-writing and giving them presents.


We are currently looking for new sponsors in 2020! If you are interested, please e-mail us at for more details.

About Spur Afrika Australia

Spur Afrika aims to be a community that spurs individual potential for a sustainable future. We believe the key is to engage, empower and educate. Our main focus is on children and young adults living in the Kibera slums, who make up 80% of the population.

Our mission:

- Community. We are two teams (Kenya & Melbourne) working together to bring sustainable, positive impact to the poverty-stricken areas of the Kibera slums.

- Individual potential. We believe potential can be discovered and nurtured through intentional relationships. Our child sponsorship program, mentorship programs and transitional scholarships focus heavily on equipping individuals living in Kibera to reach their full potential.

- A sustainable future. A lasting impact which is both culturally sensitive and progresses towards growth of the community. Our main focus is on education, however knowing that education alone is not enough, we also provide authentic mentorship, health access and much more!
