Cultivating hope, change and empowerment through education sponsorship, one child at a time.

One Life to Give is a non-profit organization that is devoted to supporting children’s education in rural Kenya through generous hearts and sponsorship. We are not a school but rather a catalyst for change, raising enough funds to help children stay in school by paying school fees, offering counseling services for the youth and empowering the lives of young girls and boys by giving them a chance to learn, grow and create a future of their dreams. 

The vision behind the mission.

We all know that children are our future, with hearts and minds open, ready to create a world of purpose, but unfortunately most have begun their journey with hardship, limiting their basic right to education, their basic right to dream. These children are either orphaned, living in a single-parent (or grandparent) home or one of their parents are disabled – without their choice, life is a struggle, and the prospect of schooling becomes a heavy burden. This is where we come in, deeply inspired to ignite hope in children’s lives, to provide them with a single opportunity to learn, develop and reach their truest potential, transforming a spark of hope into change, transforming dreams into real possibility.

How you can lend a helping hand.

You can play a huge role in a child’s life through monthly sponsorship. By paying $48.00 per month, you will be contributing to a child’s education, lending a helping hand to keep them in school and support them on their journey to build a future of opportunity, change and happiness.


A peek at the projects that have been going on in Kenya…

This is our first One Life classroom in Kenya!

























We also did a lot of remodeling of the house on the One Life property on our family’s last trip.








Looking forward to making this home a cozy place to stay on the next trip!

Next Project...

Since we were able to construct a classroom on the One Life property in July of 2022 the next big project is to actually drill for clean drinking water. We have students using the classroom and latrines but really need to get water on the property for sanitation purposes. While we were there we attempted to dig manually for water but were unsuccessful even after power tools and dynamite since there is so much rock on our property.  In a way this is a blessing because if it forces us to drill for water then we will be able to share clean drinking water with the community.  Currently, everyone in this neighborhood gets their water from a creek where cattle drink, people bath, and ladies do laundry in so they have to boil the water before drinking it.  So to drill way out in this rural area would cost us $12,000.  If you would like to be a part of this drilling project we would be so grateful.

Kenyans are hard-working people and they start working when they can walk.  Because of that, we love that we get to give rural Kenyan youth two days of fun at an U16 soccer tournament.   If you are interested in being a sponsor of this tournament then please contact
