Review for Kenya Connect Inc, Elkridge, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Kenya Connect embodies asset-based community development. This nonprofit is staffed by community members working for their community and offer wrap-around services to ensure students have what they need to succeed. Kenya Connect's programs are designed to promote dignity and self efficacy for their clients by eliminating 'hand-out' models and implementing buy-in from community members. Their solar light program, compost toilets, and reusable sanitary pad program all promote sustainability as well as economic stability. Additionally, Kenya Connect offers a mobile library, de-worming pills, and eye screenings in an effort to improve local students academic success. All of these efforts ultimately promote empowering and engaging students to succeed in the 21st century.
