Elephant Scholarships

We work closely with local primary schools in the area to select highly motivated intelligent students who come from pastoralist backgrounds and whose families are unable to afford the school fees.

Sponsoring these young people provides them with a rare and precious opportunity that will change their lives.

Since 2001 over 173 beneficiaries have had their lives transformed by donors who donated scholarship funds to help children living in the elephants’ range. The alumni are now becoming leaders in their communities. Each is an ambassador for conservation while also increasing local capacity in a wide range of sectors such as health, education, wildlife, tourism, and business, among others.

The Scholarship programme is one of many outreach activities run by the Save the Elephants’ education team in Northern Kenya. The team also teaches classes designed to increase students’ knowledge of elephants, organise field trips for students to see elephants firsthand, purchase educational equipment such as desks, meals for boarding students, equip dormitories, construct latrines and provide electricity for schools. Last year, the team distributed more than a thousand drought resistant seedlings to provide future shade from trees.

This program goes the extra mile to build both intellect and character, and the sponsor has a unique opportunity to be part of this journey. The students build friendships with their sponsors, and with STE and stay in close contact the whole way through termly letters and pictures.

The fate of elephants is in the balance. The record price of ivory has attracted organised crime, rebel militias and even terrorist groups, fuelling a surge of poaching across the continent. Without the outstanding support and generosity of our donors, STE would not be able to continue securing a future for the elephants. We urgently need your support, while there is still time. You can be of vital assistance by donating to either our core funds or to any of our projects.
