An exciting thing happened when Kenya Keys partnered with US Synthetic, an 800-employee company based in Orem, Utah, to create the Global Classroom project.
Schools in rural Kenya are in desperate need of basic essentials. Most lack educational materials, desks, books, latrines, and classrooms. The Global Classroom program pairs American schools with school in rural Kenya, and the two become “sister schools.”
An engaging assembly filled with examples of real-life experiences in rural Kenya helps the American students feel connected to their new friends across the globe. United and motivated, the American students begin working together to raise funds to meet the specific needs of their sister school.
Funded projects are carried out in Kenya. Through photos and videos, the American school is able to watch as their donations transform their sister school, impacting hundreds of children’s lives and their learning potential. The connection between schools can be rich, rewarding, and long-lasting.
We currently have ten schools in the U.S. paired with schools in Kenya. Thousands of dollars have been raised in creative and engaging projects initiated by the students. Classrooms, latrines, books, desks, and other essential resources have been provided for the Kenyan schools. Join this exciting program by requesting a presentation.
