Advancing education in Kenya, one child at a time

CMETrust’s mission is to advance education in Kenya by providing secondary and post-secondary school scholarships, with funds raised annually, to students from Mathare Valley Slum, Nairobi; and, to raise awareness in Canada about education and poverty in urban Kenya.

CMETrust is currently providing 60 secondary school scholarships, and has 60 alumni. We are also supporting five post-secondary scholars.

CMETrust was founded in 2006 and is an entirely volunteer-run, registered Canadian charity (No. 83906 0720 RR0001) with chapters in Ottawa and Toronto. CMETrust is proud to be a member of the Ontario Council for International Cooperation.
