Welcome to SAAS

Sponsor an African Scholar (SAAS) is an Irish charity (Charity Number CHY 17318) that provides sustainable solutions to communities in Kenya. SAAS was founded in early 2006 in response to the exploitation being experienced by young people and their families who live in extreme poverty.

As we believe sustainable development involves the development of people, our mission is to empower people with the knowledge and skills that will enable them to live a life of self reliance and self respect so that they can overcome the challenges faced within their society.
