Blown Away!
September 07, 2016

With days still to go, you helped us meet our goal!  Two teachers in Kenya are fully funded.  THANK YOU!  But why stop there?  We're reaching  See more
Laura and Jason Thompson

THE STORY:

OUR TKP STORY:  Once upon a time, Jason and I had opportunities to travel to Kenya and we simply fell in love: in love with the people, the culture and the students at The Kilgoris Project schools.  We visited both a typical Kenyan government school (think poor facilities, few supplies and as many as 80 students to 1 teacher) as well as TKP schools (think beautiful, clean facilities, many supplies and low student:teacher ratios) and knew that we needed to do everything possible to help these students.  Now I'm asking you to . . . Join our crew in 2016!

OUR TKP GOAL:  This year we hope to raise $3,500.  Can you believe that $1,750 pays a competitive teacher salary and benefits in Kilgoris for an entire year? There are 34 exceptional and dedicated teachers on staff at TKP schools. We want to raise enough to pay for two of these teachers that we appreciate so much after seeing firsthand their hard work and tireless dedication in action.  When you donate to our Back-to-School campaign you give 1,000 students in rural Kenya a rich environment to learn and grow with teachers who truly make a difference!

Join our team, our movement and our love for Kenya. One book, teacher, lesson and child at a time.
