Frances Batarse

Co-Founder

Education is a powerful tool that strengthens communities and gives individuals the ability to choose the life they wish to lead. I have spent time volunteering in an orphanage outside of Nairobi and I was touched by beautiful spirit of the children there despite the lack of access to regular meals, shoes or other basic resources so many of us are accustomed to. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to assist in this organization as I truly believe that providing primary education to those who are impoverished is a key step in the pursuit of a better life.

Hear it from our volunteers!
