About Kenya Connect
Our mission is to connect youth globally through correspondence and service for the purpose of promoting deep cultural exchange and understanding. We hope to ignite youth worldwide through person-to-person connections to understand local community needs and practices in a first-hand, meaningful way.
Kenya Connect is working to make significant, lasting changes that contribute to peaceful, productive globalization. We believe that the experiences we provide children are precisely those that inspire them to become “world citizens” – to fulfill their potential, to value work, to celebrate and be enriched by diversity, and to grow into adults for whom acts of generosity and the spirit of sharing are a way of life.
We currently have 53 schools in Kenya enrolled in our program: 45 primary schools, 8 secondary schools including a school for the mentally and physically handicapped and one for the hearing impaired. These schools are partnered with schools in the U.S.A., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, China and Great Britain. In the past, schools in South Korea and France have also been involved in our outreach.
