Stichting Siaya is now an ANBI organization

Students of Siaya Education Project

Siaya 17                     anbi_zk_fc_standaard

Starting from 17th of january 2017 Stichting Siaya officially holds the ANBI qualification.

What is an ANBI ?

An ANBI is an organization that works for a good cause in society. Also it means that no one in Stichting Siaya, is making a personal profit. ANBI also is an indication of integrity on an organizational and individual level. The foundation has the obligation to yearly publish its financial balance. The tax office is checking regularly if the foundation sticks to its legal ANBI obligations.

Tax deduction

When making a donation to a good cause that holds the ANBI qualification, in some cases this donation is tax deductible. An individual or company that donates more than one percent of the year-income, can deduct this amount from tax. However, most gifts are less than one percent. In order to make these gifts tax deductible, these gifts can be described in a agreement with our foundation, stating that the gifts will be done over minimum 5 years.

A named fund

A sponsor can also install a fund in favour of Stichting Siaya, naming this fund at will. In a donation agreement the sponsor can define the duration and the amount of the fund. The minimum overall amount must be € 75.000, to be spread over several years. The donation agreement will ensure avoiding paying taxes by the sponsor. This agreement can be made while alive, or in a last will.

Are you considering a donation agreement of a named fund? Please contact our foundation to discuss the possibilities.

A bike for Hillary

A bike for Hillary


When a child is willing to walk 8 km a day searching for knowledge, nothing can stop him/her. That is the case of Hillary, one of our first sponsor children in Siaya Education Project. He lives far away from school, so he has to walk everyday the distance between Sirandumb and Ugunja.

In SEP we were profoundly moved by his attitude and his willingness to learn, so we decided to do something about it.

Thanks to your donations we were able to buy a second hand bicycle for him, so he will not have to walk that much every day to go to school.


The bike was presented to Hillary at Nyasanda in the presence of Mr Ayiemba and Mr Onditi.

Kidstar Academy in 2016 was a big success

Our last edition of Kidstar Academy in 2016 was a big success!

kidstar-diciembre-2016Kidstar academy classes are not only a way for students to improve the normal school syllabus, but also a very important part of their formation in life skills. During the Kidstar academy days the students can learn about enhancing their self-esteem, how to identify their career choices, talent development, entrepreneurship skills and other relevant topics like how to avoid drugs and other harmful substances. All these subjects are imparted by specialists on call.

It takes place three times a year, during the holiday breaks in.April, August and from November to late December.

Normally, the number of participants per session is around 100 but, during the November – December holiday, the number rose to 157 students. This successful figure is related to the increase of guest speakers from Kisii University, the Probation Office in Ugunja and the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University.

In this last session, the teachers involved were:


Gordon Ochieng (Maths/ Business studies)

Finn Okewo (Guidance and counseling/ Biology and Chemistry)

Grace Ooko,(English /Literature)

Veronica Ojwang (Kiswahili /History)

Sylvester Alomba (Chemistry /Physics)

Paul Oluoch (Biology /Chemistry).


We would like to thank teachers and students for their efforts during 2016 and encourage them to continue working together for 2017.
