We have seen time and time again the power of multiple positive mentors in the life of a child, and that is why Canopy Life goes beyond
a simple one-to-one sponsorship program. Each student has four sponsors and one global mentor which create a “Sponsor Family.”


Join A Sponsor Family

Be a part of what God is doing to grow Kenya’s future leaders!

Authentic

Sponsors receive regular updates on the ups and downs of their child’s academic, physical, and spiritual development. It’s our hope that sponsors will be mentors and cheerleaders for their students.

Family

You’re not alone! Every child has a Sponsor Family that encourages and disciples their student together. This is a great opportunity to teach your own children about global relationships.

Connection

You can connect with your student in many ways: Facebook, video chat, email, letters and pictures. We’ll give you amazing tools to make this easy. You can even come visit him or her in Kenya!

Fun

At Canopy Life, we love to play and laugh together. Sponsors are invited to join in the joy and whimsy that take place—both through planned fun and spontaneity!

Creative

We go beyond just bi-annual letters. You will also receive pictures, drawings, videos, and fun handmade gifts from your student. Through social media, you’ll see the art they are creating and be inspired to create your own!

Frequently Asked Questions


Your sponsorship creates a guided, nurturing environment for all of our students and ensures they are provided with imagination-enabling programs, life-changing discipleship, innovative education, food, clothing, and medical care. In this way, you sponsor the school and build a relationship with one specific child.
Our students are children with leadership potential who otherwise might not get the opportunity to thrive. Our ideal child is from a rural village, has at least one living parent, and who is doing well in school but unable to realize his or her true leadership and entrepreneurial capacity within the traditional school format.
Currently our students are from the 410 Bridge communities of Kwambekenya, Karagoto, and Ngaamba.
Canopy Life is an educational opportunity that, to our knowledge, is not available anywhere else in Kenya. Your sponsorship is not only key to funding the transformative programs at Canopy Life but also to building each student into a future leader through intentional mentor relationships. You will help fuel your student’s creativity, expand his or her worldview, and deepen his or her faith just by being a friend, cheerleader, and mentor. 
Ideally a sponsor would stay on through the duration of the child’s education so there are consistent voices encouraging and mentoring the student. However, we realize that situations change. If at any time you need to pause or cancel your sponsorship, simply contact our office at sponsorship@canopylife.org.
Skype calls are currently available to global mentors only. Each month, we post available times typically for a Friday or Saturday morning. Each global mentor signs up for a time slot and is then sent a list of questions to ask his or her student during the Skype call. The child will also come prepared with things to share. These guided conversations are great times for the kids to practice their English!

The children attend our school eight months out of the year. They have breaks in April, August, and November/December, at which time they travel home to be with their families.
We invite letters year-round, and we always welcome book donations for our library. However, we discourage individual gifts outside of our annual Sponsor Box. You are also welcome in year-end giving to contribute specifically to your student’s uniform or school needs.
