No Child Left Behind
We provide full academic scholarships to children and youth who are living in society's corners and denied their right to education. Abject poverty, Abuse, Neglect, Orphan, Homeless, Disability, Different, Sick, Burdened - are all reasons why Heshima students have been shunned. But, make no mistake, these are the world's most resilient children.
We are putting pencils into their hands, so they can re-write their story and map out their own future.
LEADERS IN THE MAKING
Paying It Forward
This is how students PAY for their Education:
By paying it forward. Why? Because no matter how poor the world defines you, we believe that everyone has something to contribute to it.
Heshima students who were once seen as a community burden, are becoming its leaders. Our students are fighting for the rights of elderly people while caring for them and providing for their basic needs. They are delivering and sharing a meal with community members living in isolation. They are taking care of sick children and advocating for people with disabilities. This program exercises humility and develops a happy community; both invaluable life lessons never found in a textbook.
