Tomorrow we leave bright and early for Kenya to begin building The Kibera School for Girls and Shining Hope Community Compound. This compound, a recent development thanks to the American Friends of Kenya, will include The Kibera School for Girls (the first school for girls and only free school in all of Kibera), the Kibera Free Health Clinic (the only free health clinic in the slum), the Dennis Silver Memorial Family Library, The Women's Microfinance Empowerment Center and the SHOFCO Youth Center.
We're very excited about this amazing beginning. Our time in Kenya will be non-stop. We arrive late the 16th and begin meeting with teachers early in the morning on the 17th. This time will also be tremendously satisfying, humbling, and filled with lessons. We will keep you posted on all of the details. Follow the play by play here!
Thanks for your support,
Jess and Kennedy
