Give

The Old Starehian Society is fortunate to be able to count on alumni/ae and Friends of Starehe who have enabled the organization to grow and achieve its mission. When you give to OSS, you make it possible for bright yet needy girls and boys to get quality education at the Starehe Schools and for alumni/ae of all ages to get the support they need through programs like the Alumni Support Fund. With your gift, we can accomplish our mission of serving Old Starehians, the Starehe Schools, and making a clear contribution to transforming the society we live in.
Here are top reasons why Old Starehians and Friends of Starehe continue to give to OSS.

Living The Charge

Each Starehian was charged “…never to forget the great benefits you have received in this place, and in time to come according to your means to do all that you can do to enable others to enjoy the same advantage…” Giving back to Starehe enables those that come after us to also benefit and exploit their full potential as we did. Starehe changed our lives by providing us with quality education, unique opportunities, lasting friendships and countless memories.

Secure Starehe

The Founders of Starehe entrusted the future of the Starehe Schools to the Old Girls and Boys. The Founders also had a vision of establishing an endowment fund to secure, in perpetuity, the free places at the Starehe Schools forever. Giving an endowment (or partial endowment) is a means of securing a free place for a needy girl or boy at Starehe. You also leave a legacy as the Griffin Memorial Endowment Trust memorialising your gift on the GMET Monument.

Support Fellow Alumni/ae

Giving to OSS enables us to support Old Girls and Old Boys who are facing difficult moments in their lives. This includes medical emergencies, educational support or enabling them to start new businesses.

Make Alumni Events Possible

Giving to OSS helps fund the numerous events and programmes we coordinate and put on for alumni/ae and the Starehe Schools. The events enable Old Starehians to reconnect, network with each other, and explore opportunities to enrich each other’s lives.

Support OSS Operations

Giving to OSS enables us fund our operations. This includes raising sponsorships for girls and boys at the Starehe Schools, raising endowment funds for GMET and running numerous alumni welfare programmes.

The General OSS Fund enables the Society to carry run its day to day operations including provision of services to members and alumni, fundraising for the Starehe Institutions, organising events, running programmes like the insurance programme, and other activities in support of of our mission.

This is a fund put in place to secure the future of the Starehe Schools. Griffin Memorial Endowment Trust (GMET) was established in 2009 in commemoration of the late Dr. Geoffrey Griffin, the Principal Founder of Starehe. GMET invests the funds and only the interest accrued caters for needy students in perpetuity. To achieve this goal, each needy student requires one endowment at the value of KES 1,000,000 and currently we have a total of 1,647 students from both Starehe Boys and Starehe Girls Centres. GMET currently has KES 224 million and the target is to raise KES 2 billion to ensure all sponsored positions at the Starehe Schools are funded forever.
