TKP: Back-to-School Campaign 2015

THE STORY:

When I began volunteering with this Project by hosting Marketplace at the studio, I wasn't even sure exactly why or what led me to TKP in particular. At the time, I knew that the organization built schools and fostered health and economic development in rural Kenya. Anything beyond that, I was honestly not really certain of. 
Something in my heart told me to go bigger. "Build a school!" So, as a tribe at kādi, we gave of ourselves physically, financially, and emotionally to raise $18,000 over the course of one year. Incredible! 

Last year, a group of us had the pleasure, and insanely rewarding experience of going to Kenya, and witnessed it all in person. The gorgeous rolling hills, the bright blue sky seemingly closer to earth, tiny vibrant buildings, and most of all, beaming smiles and hugs from the most loving people in the entire world. The kids we were building the school for were currently meeting everyday under a tree. That day we all sat under the same gorgeous tree singing, dancing and celebrating the structure, the roof that was soon to be over their heads. But, even more rewarding was the immediate love, support and friendship we all felt. It was beyond words. THIS IS HEAVEN ON EARTH, I thought to myself.

I am going back. Over and over again in this lifetime. I didn't know at the beginning why I was doing what I was doing. But, I know now, it's greatly fulfilled my life to have a wonderful partnership and friendship with the people of Kilgoris.

Building a school wasn't all a one time commitment. Let's keep our school funded in 2015!

Join our crew in 2015!

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 the 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. 

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