Our Vision

Laying Foundations for a Brighter Tomorrow

Welcome to the Charles Musyoka Matuku Foundation, a beacon of hope and progress for the youth in Kitui County, as well as neighboring Machakos, Makueni, and Nairobi counties, and Kenya at large. Our dedication is to overcome educational barriers by providing scholarships and mentorship to underprivileged students. Join us in supporting their path to success and contribute to our mission of transforming lives through learning.

The Genesis of the Charles Musyoka Matuku Foundation

From Vision to Reality - Born from Monica Ellis's life experiences in Kenya and her transformative insights in the U.S., the Charles Musyoka Matuku Foundation was created to change lives through education. In 2012, Monica's support for her nieces' schooling ignited a commitment to assist Kenya's children who lack educational aid. The foundation breaks financial barriers, offering scholarships and guidance, and stands as a testament to the belief that every child deserves a chance at a brighter future.

Empowerment Through Education

Our mission is to fundamentally uplift the lives of disadvantaged children in Kenya by delivering comprehensive educational opportunities. We believe that access to quality education is the cornerstone of empowerment, allowing each child to build a future of their own design. Through scholarships, mentorship, and resource provision, we commit to nurturing the potential within every young mind we reach.

Unlocking Potential, One Child at a Time

We envision a future where every Kenyan child, regardless of their socioeconomic background, has unhindered access to education and fundamental rights. Our vision extends beyond the classroom; we aim to cultivate a community where continued learning, critical resources, and support systems are readily available, ensuring that our children and their families can thrive in an environment ripe with possibilities.
