Scholarship program to support young people.

LeNoir Foundation's merit-based sponsorship programme is a fantastic & rewarding way to directly help a child get a head-start in life. Each of the children selected for sponsorship meets strict criteria and are known personally to our teams in Uganda and Zimbabwe.

Our merit-based scholarships provide low-income families with an opportunity for their children to receive financial aid, student support, and quality education. This allows motivated students to access higher quality education.

Scholarships Include:

  • 1 year of tuition (including exam fees)

  • Learning materials, uniforms, and sanitary products

  • *Essential packages including reusable masks, soap, water, and supplemental educational materials

Our exceptional students must meet certain standards to receive a scholarship.


The criteria include academic achievement, good behaviour while in school, and ongoing family engagement. By creating expectations, we ensure accountability for the student and offer shared responsibility and support between LeNoir Foundation staff and the local community.


67% of children in Southern Africa are unable to afford secondary school. LeNoir Foundation runs a sponsorship programme to ensure that the poorest and vulnerable will receive an education. We currently sponsor 5 primary school students.


We are actively seeking new sponsors to enable a new group of children to begin primary school in January 2021. If you would like to sponsor any of our children, please take a look and let us know which of them you would like to support. It costs £12.50 per month to pay for one student to go to primary school, but we would gratefully welcome any level of regular donation. 100% of the £12.50 goes to the project, so if you would like to make a difference in this way please email: and we'll send you a sponsorship form.


In whatever we do, we place a special emphasis on ensuring the needs and rights of children are met because they are often the hardest hit by conflict, disaster and chronic poverty. Join us in helping children have a better life.​


We are launching a new scholarship program to give young people in developing countries the opportunity to study and realise their desires to give back to their communities. Our goal is to award 10 scholarships by December 2020 to students in countries such as Zimbabwe and Uganda.
