I once again have the wonderful opportunity to travel with INGAGE Unlimited this August! This summer’s destination is Kenya!
As in the past, I will be working in an area where extreme poverty greatly impacts a child’s ability to achieve an education. We will be working with the teachers in Kenya to learn of their unique situations and needs. Over the next several months my INGAGE Unlimited team and I will begin to create professional development workshops to help meet the academic and social/emotional needs expressed by the Kenyan teachers.
While in Kenya, we will be working with two partners. Our first destination is Kibera, the largest urban slum in africa. There we will be working with the teachers from the Bringing Miracles School. Next we travel to the city of Naivasha to work with the teachers and students at Light of Hope Home, whose mission is to provide refuge, restoration, and redirection for the abandoned, abused, orphaned and neglected girls of Kenya. Educating and empowering girls is key to ending global poverty. In poorer nations, girls frequently receive little or no education, often marry at an early age and bear more children. Each year of education a girl receives, increases her future wages and often increases the age at which she will marry.
