As a family, we are excited to be part of The Kilgoris Project (TKP). As many of you know, Abby has been involved with TKP for several years. She has been inspired by the love and dedication of the Masai of Kilgoris that are making a positive difference in the lives of children, women and men. In fact, she is there visiting Kilgoris now! While I haven't been there yet, I've been inspired by both the Kenyan's of Kilgoris and the people here in the U.S., who are dedicated to do all that it takes to provide education,heathcare and economic development to the Masai of Kilgoris.
Will you consider being part of this amazing effort this back-to-school season?
- Be part of a community that supports more than 1,000 students attending TKP's pre- and primary schools.
- Be part of a world-wide team investing in children in rural southwest Kenya.
- Be part of a movement that changes lives one book, teacher, lesson and child at a time.
Did you know...$2,500 funds an entire TKP classroom for the whole school year? That's teacher salary and benefits, enrichment programs, school equipment and supplies, and electronic books on Kindles. When you donate to our Back-to-School campaign you give these kids a rich environment to learn and grow. And the opportunity to extend their education for years to come.
Consider supporting with an amount you would spend to equip your child with school supplies and all that is needed for the school year. If 100 people donated $25 we would reach our goal. More would surpass that!
Please take a moment to enjoy a few Kilgoris photos and watch the video about The Kilgoris Project. Enjoy!
Being given the opportunity to travel and experience not only the Kenyan environment and culture, but especially the way TKP has worked in Kilgoris with consistency and commitment has had a huge impact on the way I see God working throughout the world. Although NGOs and other aid organizations are often criticized (and sometimes rightfully so) the foundation of an effctive, sustainable program is one that focuses on developing skills and fostering independence. It is built off of lasting relationships and understanding, where the community and not the organization is responsible for their own future, and must also believe in the success of the programs and schools. This is exactly what I find in TKP that has encouraged me and motivated me to tell others about all that God is doing in a small town in Southwest Kenya!
