Education is the gateway to a brighter future. Sometimes, though, there are a lot of barriers between a student and finishing school.

We're teaming up with communities in rural Kenya to break down these barriers. We help them build classrooms, dormitories, bathrooms and water systems for local schools. We work with teachers to make sure they have the supplies they need to help children learn. And we engage communities in conversations about why education is important for children.

We're also working with young adults who haven't had the chance to learn to read. They may have not finished school, or their education may have been interrupted when they fled their home country. We're working with hundreds of students in Kenya’s Kakuma Refugee Camp, as well as from the local community, to focus on adult literacy.
