Travel For Good: Creating Change Through Education
Author: Harini Sriram

Mike aspires to become a civil engineer. A high school student in Nairobi, he lives with his four siblings and his mother, a casual laborer, who struggles to make ends meet. Thanks to Logos Scholarship Fund, Mike can get closer to pursuing his dream, while his mother can rest assured that at least one of her kids will have uninterrupted education.

Many young children like Mike, who come from disadvantaged backgrounds, have been able to continue their secondary education with financial support from Logos Scholarship Fund in Kenya. At Enchanting Travels, we believe that every child deserves a bright future. We’ve partnered with Logos to sponsor the education of five scholars every year, and also provide internship opportunities to our high school graduates as well as college students.

How Can You Contribute?

We have been associated with Logos Scholarship Fund since 2016. In 2022, so far (as of June 2022) we have contributed close to USD12,000 towards school fees of 16 students for the year.

If you’d like to help, our referral program, Friends For Friends, is one way of contributing to the cause. Every time a friend or family member books a trip with us based on your recommendation, we make a donation of USD50 to Logos Scholarship Fund on your behalf. The contribution will go towards school fees, materials and uniforms for the scholars. 

You can speak to our travel experts about other ways in which you can support this initiative.

About Logos Scholarship Fund

Travel For Good: Creating Change Through Education

A social justice initiative of the Nairobi Chapel, Logos Scholarship Fund was established in 2007 to help students who were displaced as a result of widespread violence in the country after the 2007-08 elections. Many families had to live in camps around the city, and couldn’t afford to send their children to school. The scholarship fund ensured that the children are not deprived of a good childhood and a solid education. 

Since its inception, Logos Scholarship Fund has sponsored more than 500 students in high schools, colleges and universities across Kenya. The fund covers a duration of ten years in the life of a student, all the way through high school and college. It goes beyond formal education to actively nurture the dreams of children and provide mentorship opportunities so they can turn their aspirations into reality and thrive in their chosen environment.

Giving Wings To Dreams

It fills us with hope and joy to play a small part in the journeys of young children as they set out to fulfill their aspirations. Take Stephen, a Form 4 student, for instance. He is an avid football player, and dreams of becoming a doctor. Despite a history of domestic violence, he is determined to create a better future for himself and his family. Naomi, a drama and music enthusiast, aspires to become an engineer and help her family tide through their financial troubles. Millicent, a hardworking Form 4 student, wants to be a pilot, while Winfred’s goal is to be a successful surgeon. Here are some more students whose hopes and dreams you could help realize.
