Review for Kenya Connect Inc, Elkridge, MD, USA
Kenya Connect focuses on removing barriers to education in the most creative and practical ways. I visited Wamunyu, Kenya with Kenya Connect in 2015 when I participated in professional development and had several classroom teaching opportunities with the dedicated teachers and students in various schools. For the past 6 years, my school’s students in the U.S. have participated in the pen pal program through Kenya Connect, enriching their lives and helping them to feel more connected to the broader world.
The talented staff in Kenya finds solutions for so many obstacles to education, including improving student health, expanding access to books and solar lights, giving training in technology, and providing the basic necessities of life. The organization addresses any area that could prevent a student from acquiring an education. In addition, the Learning Resource Center (LRC) is providing essential access to high speed internet, computers, books (including a mobile library), and even 3-D printers. This impressive organization does it all, and Kenya Connect is always willing to partner with schools in more ways to deepen the educational experience. I am so grateful to have made this connection for myself and for my school, and my students continue to benefit from our ongoing relationship with Kenya Connect. Kami Mulzet
