A Community Education journey is planned for March 1-16, 2012.
A group will travel to a remote village in Isiolo District, Kenya. The first stop will be at a school to discuss child rights, and girl child education with the students. The students will have an opportunity to discuss how they feel about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and Early Forced Marriage (EFM). Then community meetings for women and men will be held separately. The laws a written in the new constitution forbidding FGM, EFM before the age of 18 and mandating girl child education will be discussed as well as the reasons behind the mandates.
This is an open journey, though limited in numbers. If you are interested in participating in this Service Journey, please email email@example.com
Expanding Opportunities has received a grant from Rhodes Scholars, RSSAF to kick start the Distance Learning Center.
We will be able to finish one room of the Center, hire a coordinator and get started!!
There is still a long way to go so hop aboard and bring Distance Education and on site learning to the Community of Rabondo, Kenya.
Thank you RSSAF for this kickstart! The work will begin ASAP.

Camp Forest Starts the 2011 Season
By Beverly Gilbert Stone - Director
May studies the plaster cast tracks with Adam.
Camp Forest held its first Season Extender! The 2011 camp season kicked off with a home school day. This is the first year for Camp Forest to offer special “off season” experiences. Home Schoolers attended one full day and worked on skills toward an Osprey or Eagle badge, which included identification of animal tracks. Camp Forests is also hosting an adult class on Survival Skills sponsored by Mt View Adult Education. Day and Expedition camping begin June 27th. We hope to raise enough campership funds to offer this experience to any low-income children who apply. Visit the website to discover the amazing learning opportunities offered at Camp Forest.
