Africa SOMA Inc.

Africa SOMA sees education as a central tool in improving the lives of all people. In Kenya, progress has been made in expanding access to education, however large hurdles remain: quality is often low, secondary schools are prohibitively expensive, and often the most vulnerable groups, such as Maasai pastoralists, continue to be unable to access even primary education. Improving participation in schooling requires creative solutions that lower barriers to entry and improve the learning environment. Our programs aspire to contribute to such creative solutions.

Thank you from Monica!

We received such an amazing response to Monica's microproject, all of Africa SOMA has been blown away by the compassion and genorosity of donors such as yourself. We have great faith in Monica as she moves forward on her path towards becoming a doctor and it was so wonderful to see the same faith reflected back by our donors. 

Monica is nearing the end of her final year of high school. While she works hard at studying for final exams it is reassuring to know money is not something she will need to stress about, allowing her full focus to be poured into her work. 

Although Africa SOMA currently has two interns, Brooke and Helen, working on the ground in Elangata Wuas they were unfortunately unable to meet up with Monica since she attends a high school outside of the community and was so focused on her studies while they were there that she did not have time to come home for a visit. Regardless, she wanted to make sure the message was passed along to all of the donors like yourself for your generous contributions and support. 

On behalf of Africa SOMA I would like to thank you for your support. Our work cannot happen without people like you not only believing in our work, but putting down some of your own hard earned money as token of support. As you may know education is one of the most consistant methods to create greater health, social mobility, climate change resilence and empowerment for underpriviledged youth. Increased education of youth also has the wonderful bonus of creating a positive ripple effect through communities such as Elangata Wuas. 

On behalf of Monica, the Elangata Wuas Community and Africa SOMA's Team - Thank you.

Thank you from Damaris!

Thank you!

We received such an amazing response to Damaris' microproject, all of Africa SOMA has been blown away by the compassion and genorosity of donors such as yourself. We have great faith in Damaris as she moves forward on her path towards becoming a teacher and it was so wonderful to see the same faith reflected back by our donors.

Although Africa SOMA has a part time coordinator, Isaac Kakeni, working in Elangata Wuas he was unfortunately unable to meet up with Damaris since she attends a high school outside of the community and was so focused on her studies that she has not had time recently to come home for a visit. Regardless, she wanted to make sure that a message of thanks was passed along to all of the donors like yourself for your generous contributions and support.
