Dear Friends of Kenya Connect!

Thank you for your donation to Kenya Connect’s Green Community Resource Center in Wamunyu, Kenya.  As a result of the generosity of 376 donors, Kenya Connect secured $5,300 in bonus grants – the highest amount possible – in the Global Giving challenge! 

 The Kenya Connect team has been profoundly moved by the extraordinary show of support from family, friends and former strangers.  In this month-long challenge, people have contributed $27,000 – almost half the necessary $60,000 making it possible to begin construction on the community center right away.  Excitement in the Wamunyu area is so high, schools and individuals in Wamunyu are already committing to helping with the construction of the center by making bricks and gathering building materials.  

Close to 100 of the gifts made to the challenge were from our partner schools’ Headmasters and members of the community.  They are thrilled at the thought of a Resource Center with a library and computers and deeply appreciative of your donation.

We look forward to continue sharing the progress of the center with you over the coming months.  Updates will be sent through our postings on Global Giving as well as the Kenya Connect newsletter which provides reports on all the partner school projects that continue to connect children around the world.  If you are not already receiving the newsletter and would like to, please visit the Kenya Connect website ( sign-up.


Asante Sana,

The Kenya Connect Team

We are THRILLED the challenge was successful!
