THE STORY:

Youth from Detroit Public Schools (DPS) are linked through the Internet with an indigenous Maasai community in Kenya. Together, they share their cultures while gaining international business, leadership, entrepreneurship skills -- and an income -- by creating a business that imports and sells Maasai beaded jewelry in Detroit, and exports used technology (mainly laptop computers) from Detroit to rural Kenya. The WTA non-profit and Skillman Foundation are funding most of the initiative, with funds raised here used to help establish the international business and to fly youth leaders and their teachers from Detroit to Kenya for a two-week life-changing experience with their Maasai business partners. A successful program creates a blueprint for Detroit schools in international youth entrepreneurship and a gateway from Detroit to Africa -- a rising star in the new global economy.
