Ndohivyo is a school that supports more than 50 special needs students in the Samburu region of Kenya. In 2009, Bill Self, of Portland, Oregon, visited Kenya with Brent Hayes and saw firsthand the needs of the Ndohivyo school. His experience there changed his life, and his response changed the lives of the students at Ndohivyo.
Bill became their champion, tirelessly working to spread the word and raise money for the school and its students. He formed a group of volunteers to advocate for the school. Through their efforts and many generous donations, every special needs student in the region has a sponsorship to ensure that he or she will be able to continue attending school. Kenya Keys’ support also provides funding for mattresses (it is a boarding facility), educational materials, additional staff for the school, and more.
Bill and his wife Peggy, along with other members of the Ndohivyo team, have shared the story of these special students in schools, civic groups, and in social gatherings. Many people in the U.S. now have a connection to the special needs school in Kenya. And the students in Kenya have access to a quality education and the care they need. This is nothing short of a miracle in the lives of the Kenyan students and the lives of their American sponsors.
