Last-minute Holiday Gift Ideas!

This holiday season, for the person who has everything - or for the person you forgot to buy a gift for - give the gift of hope.

At SHOFCO, we work everyday to ensure that hundreds of girls in Kenyan slums are getting a safe and quality education, and that entire communities have access to clean water, free health clinics and community empowerment programs. 

Your gift will go much further than just this holiday season - it will have a long-lasting impact on countless people.

1)  Sponsor a girl! 

Sponsors are a key part of the powerful support team behind the students at our free schools. Beyond the cost of a superior education, sponsorship provides for a child’s nutritional, medical and other basic material needs. 

Through the SHOFCO sponsorship program, twice annually, you (or your gift recipient) will receive a photo, letter, and update on your student’s progress in school. 

Price: It's $100 a month for a year/ $1,200 total for one year. 

2) Gift an inspirational book: Find Me Unafraid: Love, Loss and Hope in an African Slum

Find Me Unafraid: Love, Loss, and Hope in an African Slum tells the unlikely love story between two uncommon people whose collaboration sparked a successful movement to transform the lives of vulnerable girls & the urban poor.  It's written by SHOFCO co-founders, Kennedy Odede and Jessica Posner Odede.

It's been given rave reviews by Publisher's Weekly, Chelsea Clinton, Gloria Steinem, Lonnie and Muhammed Ali, Oprah's Book Club, and more! 

Price: $15.55 on Amazon
