We believe the best way to fight poverty is through education.

We are Matanya's Hope

Matanya’s Hope is a non-profit organization that provides life-sustaining opportunities to children in their fight against poverty.  We focus on the children of Kenya – where we provide educational and community empowerment in this East African region.

I went on a voluntourism trip and I will never forget it. It was so rewarding to see how I can affect change in the poorest communities in Kenya. I am so lucky to have witnessed real change.

Sponsoring a child brings warmth to my heart. I learned about each child’s unique story and I wanted to sponsor right away. I am grateful that this program exists.

This program really puts you in the shoes of the child and the less fortunate. I was so happy to help build a home for a Kenyan family of 6—and the smiles on their face were priceless.
