About I am Heshima Organization


Educate. Empower. Elevate. 

Building a movement where every child has access to education and the tools to write their own future.


I AM HESHIMA is a grassroots organization registered in Kenya & Canada. We empower children and youth through education in and out of the classroom. We achieve this through our 5 programs: Academic scholarships (primary, secondary & post-secondary), My Time (Reproductive health), Under the Mango Tree (Early childhood education & development) Heshima Football Club (Talent development), & Leadership (Education is ‘paid back’ by giving back). The 600+ children in our organization are the 1st in 3 generations of their family to graduate! In our community, the average annual household income is $200. We are the sole organization of its kind which operates in rural western Kenya. Although the right to education is universal, access to it is not; This is the reality we are changing.
