As a Runner Up, Kenya Connect will receive $5,000 plus Co-Founder and Executive Director, Kenya James Musyoka will travel to London in March to accept the award and participate in engaging seminars and programs. The award prize will help us launch the Mighty Moringa Tree project at six partner schools.
"We are honored and humbled by this award," commented James Musyoka. "This distinction recognizes the work of Kenya Connect as a leader in innovative programs to strengthen education in rural Kenya."
Through pen pal letters to Kenya and other fundraising activities, our children have seen first hand that they can make a difference in the world. This partnership with the Mbaikini School is a tangible display of our commitment to one of our Five Gifts (Leaf): "Development of confident and respectful citizens connected to our local and global communities."
