Lynn-Rose Heights Selected by Free The Children!
Today we were pleased to welcome to our school representatives from Free the Children as well as Mama Leah, who is involved with the Kenyan artisans program and has directly experienced empowerment as a result of Free the Children.
We also welcomed Joan and Irene who are students at an all-girls school in Kenya. They were able to share with us how education and leadership opportunities are transforming their lives.
Our students had the opportunity to see pictures of life in Kenya and hear firsthand accounts of what school life and daily life is like for these girls.
Mama Leah was able to explain to students how the Empower Rafiki Friend Chain program was able to help her obtain financial independence and a better future for her family.
