Students for Kenya Initiative
About the Initiative
The Students for Kenya Initiative was founded as a mechanism for children in the United States to help youth around the world gain access to books and the equipment and materials needed for extra-curricular activities such as sports, music, and art.
These activities are crucial to a child’s development and provide opportunities to develop their skills and interests in different areas as well as to develop the skills needed to be successful in future endeavors, such as leadership and social and interpersonal skills.
This initiative was started in 2022 by 9 year olds, Tomi Dobbs of Lexington Massachusetts, USA. When they donated books to Faith Kenya Mission America and Kenya Literacy Initiative to raise awareness of the importance of helping others better their lives. Through this gesture, Tomi realized children students in kenya lacked access to books.The students have been instrumental in launching innovatives of book donations and collecting funds towards clean water and sanitation for children in Kenya.
One Child-One Dream-One Book-One Donation can lead to life-long success.
