Programs

For the past 7 years, over 40,000 letters have been sent from students in the U.S. and several countries to their Pen Pals in Kenya. Since Kenya Connect's inception in 2002, not only have thousands of letters, artwork and other projects been exchanged, students around the world have raised money to help improve schools in Kenya. Among the many accomplishments are 20 water tanks installed at schools, renovated classrooms, and uniforms and materials provided to needy schools.
