Academic Scholarships
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.

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.

It is not what we do for our children,

but what we have taught them to do for themselves,

that will make them

successful human beings.
