Kenya: Planting a Seed – Kalo Sokoto

kalokenya_flag_small'Planting a Seed' is project that was started in 2009 with the aim of building the community through investing in the young in various ways. We have been working with the Solai community in the Rift Valley province of Kenya. Due to the positive feedback from the community at large, 'Planting a Seed' seeks to expand the scholarship program by sponsoring more needy students throughout their high school education. In addition to that 'Planting a Seed' seeks to launch an annual outdoor trip which aims to both educate and expose our scholarship candidates to new opportunities. We also hope to build our candidates command for language; both English and Kiswahili. 'Planting A Seed' aims to achieve this by providing enough reading material for the candidates. Lastly, we aim to launch a community service act in honor of Nobel Prize winner the late environmentalist Daktari (Dr.) Wangari Maathae, where each scholarship candidate will be expected to plant and take care of a minimum of three trees within the school compound for the period she/he is in high school. All this we hope to achieve with the help of both the community and willing individuals who have brought the project this far.
