Over the last 10 years
- 715 Kenyan women have graduated from Pangea’s 6-month education program

- 38 scholarships have been awarded to Kenyan students
- 177 women received animal husbandry training and livestock

Through the Gatsby Gala, Key Club is hoping to raise awareness about the amazing cause that Pangea has dedicated themselves to and provide them with additional funds for their mission.
So bring out your inner Gatsby, and donate some money for a great cause!
