About EUT

In 2004 a group of 4 people came together and thought that it would be great if they motivated  students in our community in Rironi, Limuru area. Our motivation was to bring hope to kids  in public schools who  see other kids  being picked by buses and well dressed. The kids left behind grow up  frustrated and feeling neglected. We needed to motivate them and also show that  public schools can be as good  as any other and  thus cannot be a limit to their dreams. 
We  have evolved over the years and came  up with a  Trust, know as Elimu na Ufanisi Trust. Our source of financing is  contributions  from trustees.  The  main method of collection  of money is skip a lunch , a car ride or  any other thing and donate a 1000 shillings a month.
In 2010 we launched a scholarship fund which pays full high school fees for 4 years for the top 2 students in either of Nyoro and Rironi Primary Schools (best two to enhance competition between the students and the schools). Each year we award scholarships to the top two students and we are targeting to raise this number to a total of 8 students by 2014. Arising from this, we now have 6 (six) students on full scholarship in Kenya High School , Mirithu Secondary School, Kahuho Uhuru, Loreto Kiambu, St. Patrick’s Iten and Chania boys.

We estimate  that each student requires 60,000 Shillings a year and therefore 8 students will cost 480,000 shillings a year. Our goal is to have a   core kitty of 4 million shillings  which if invested  in bond and other  papers will give a return of 400,000 shillings a year.
 Currently we have about 30 persons who contribute a 1,000 shillings a month which gives 360,000 shillings a month. So we expect that  with the return of 400,000 shillings we shall have a return of 760,000 shillings a year which will sponsor the  students and do other developments in  the  community.

We already  have  raised 2.5 million shillings  for  our core kitty. We are planning to hold a  fund raising event on 8th June 2013  to raise  1.5 million shillings.
