It’s 2019, and we at corners are determined to explore the new opportunities the year has to offer and share them with you. This year we are dedicated more than ever to empowering youth and educators in Kenya and here at home through the Transformative Citizenship Program. We are working hard to renew implementation of the program in creative ways – including online – and we look forward to sharing this process with you throughout spring and summer.
With your support, we will finish our work with and commitment to the Kenyan Ministry of Education and our Transformative Citizenship leaders in Kenya to empower the educators and students at Joyland, Mbeka Girls’, and Nyang’oma Boys’ schools. And to hand off the program to the Ministry for all future training, monitoring, and evaluation.
We ask that you spread the word about Transformative Citizenship and its social value. We welcome any and all donations to our cause; and we remain grateful for those that we have received. We wish you a wonderful, healthy and peaceful year.
For many the end of a year is a time of warmth, reflection, giving, and hope for new beginnings. This is why we at corners have chosen this time to finally launch our long awaited “10 DOLLARS, 10 000 TIMES” Engagement campaign that will help facilitate the training of teachers in Kenya to teach transformative citizenship.
The campaign will be launched alongside our first social media platform. On the 22nd of November, corners will be joining Instagram. Our page will have information on the projects we have been involved in, as well as follow projects that are ongoing. A link to our Instagram page will be made available on the day of our launch.
We are excited to start this new adventure, and hope that we will be able to better connect with all of our supporters and donors from around the world.
We are ever grateful for your interest and support.
It’s that time of year again. Students and teachers around the world are getting ready for a new school year; setting new goals and preparing to take on new challenges. It is with that in mind that we have chosen this time to shine the light on all the teachers of the world and the impact they have on their communities.
At corners we recognize the power of teachers in communities around the world; and with the help of our donors, we are harnessing this power to cultivate resilience against poverty and crisis in vulnerable places by training teachers to teach transformative citizenship, equipping them and their students with the entrepreneurship and civic engagement skills to do so.
We also want to recognize all those who have shown interest and supported our cause. We are ever grateful for your donations and investments that have come in many forms. The impact they have had on all our teachers in training, and the boys and girls at Mbeka Girls’, Nyang’oma Boys’, and Joyland Schools has already been life changing for some, and acts as a beacon of hope for every Transformative Citizenship participant. Every donation made continues to touch communities; grooming a new generation of teachers who, with strengthened capacity, can better their communities and ultimately, the world.
We remain steadfast in our commitment to Kenya’s Ministry of Education in their adoption of the Transformative Citizenship Program for Kenya’s secondary school students.
Sincerely, Kiishi Ogunfowora, Director of Engagement.

We hope this note finds you well and smoothly revved up into 2018.
Our Transformative Citizenship teachers in Kenya continue to work hard and with unwavering dedication to their and our students.
Our partners at the Ministry are still making some adjustments following the election and its aftermath. Our Minister remains the same, though. So, our program arrangements are not being passed on to a new leader.
With a combination of circumstances at hand, we are pressing the hold button until summer. We will then let you know about that next critical trip to Kenya to finish the frontline teacher training and hand over the reins to the Ministry.
We are grateful, as ever, for your continued interest and support and welcome contributions to build our fund until Summer Refresh Button time - as we look to our next 2018 phase.
